Digital Sports Group head of operations Matthew Tait has said the recent on field heroics of Manchester United's ₤24 million acquisition have made a huge impact to the strikers Official PFA Facebook page, with the total weekly reach increasing by over 20%. The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Manchester United striker since it's launch and is becoming more and more popular with each week that passes, with a rapidly growing community of fans keen to hear all the latest news on their favourite player. The official PFA Facebook page along with Robin van Persie player profile on football.co.uk provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
After listening to 'the little boy inside' him and moving to Manchester United, Robin Van Persie has been prolific in-front of goal, scoring 11 goals in 14 games in all competitions for the Manchester giants. Getting the Red Devils out of some sticky situations in the process.
Van Persie scored a hat-trick against newly promoted Southampton to prevent United slipping to an embarrassing defeat after twice going behind. After missing a penalty mid-way though the second half it looked as though the Saints would hang on for a famous win. But RVP had a different ending in mind as he looked to atone for the spot kick miss which would have seen his team back on level terms. With five minutes to go up pops Van Persie to stroke home an equaliser for The Red Devils. One minute into added time after the 90 Nani swung in a corner for RVP to get on the end of and nod home to complete the comeback, scoring the third goal for his hat-trick in the process.
Three weeks later United travelled to Anfield. RVP's first match against Liverpool in the red of Manchester United. He made it a game to remember by scoring the winning goal, a penalty on the 81st minute, placed expertly into the corner of the net.
