Robin confident of more success

Robin van Persie is relishing the challenge to win trophies under David Moyes and he's confident the Reds can maintain past success.

The Dutchman joined up with his team-mates in Sydney earlier this week and has been working with his new manager for the last few days.

Van Persie is already enjoying life under Moyes and has high hopes for the future.

"It's a new challenge for all of us but one we're looking forward to," said Robin.

"We're all working very hard to get fit and, in my opinion, given the way we train and the way I have got to know the guys over the last year I'm certain we can win more trophies. We will fight to win this year again and let's hope for more."

The striker will be up against a familiar face in Saturday's friendly at the ANZ Stadium in Foxtel A-League All Stars captain Brett Emerton who used to play alongside van Persie at Feyenoord.

"Brett has always been very fit. He was always running up and down the right wing and it was really hard to play against in training at Feyenoord," recalls the 29-year-old.

"Later when I played against him - he went to England a bit earlier than me - it was always tough. I know his strength and the way he plays - he's always done a great job."
