Man Utd news: Robin van Persie reveals what he thought of Arsenal after the trip to United | Football | Sport

Manchester United hero Robin van Persie knew he had taken a step forward from Arsenal after leaving the Gunners for Old Trafford. And he admitted that he found himself working harder than ever when he moved to the Red Devils to be as successful as possible.

Manchester United signed Van Persie from Arsenal in 2012, beating Manchester City on the Dutchman’s signature.

Sir Alex Ferguson had lost the Premier League title in City the season before and wanted more firepower to get the award.

United’s move to Van Persie sent shockwaves during football and the 36-year-old handed over to the club, pushing them to the title on the first question.

And Van Persie admitted that he found himself working hard to make sure it was an Old Trafford hit.

“When it ends like this, when you go to the side of the enemy, you have to try to do your best, be fit, there is nothing else but to try to win,” he told Sky Italia.

When he moved to United, he said, “I always listen to the kid inside me in these situations, when you have to make the toughest decisions in life.

“What do you want? That guy was screaming for Man United.”

And Van Persie added: “Yes, maybe I should have chosen different words, I didn’t want to upset anyone.

“I was just trying to explain why I made that decision to win and accept this challenge.”

Meanwhile, speaking recently, Van Persie urged United to sign Edinson Cavani and pair him alongside Bruno Fernandes in attack.

“Edinson Cavani. I’d definitely prefer Cavani, “he said when asked who he would sign for the Red Devils.

“He is very fit, he is a proven scorer, a goal machine, he proved it in Naples, PSG and Uruguay.

“With him, if he starts, he will earn you 25 goals per season.

“I saw him play, I played against him, he is like a real scorer. He lives scoring goals, so I would like for him.”
