- Van Persie lifted the PL trophy in his very first season with United.
- Sir Alex added that the Dutchman settled into the squad very quickly.
In an interview back in 2013, Sir Alex Ferguson revealed: "I remember Arsene [Wenger] saying ‘he’s [Robin van Persie] a better player than you think’ after I’d done the deal and he was right.
"He has never disappointed us I knew he could gel into the team.
"In terms of impact he has had as big an impact as anyone I can imagine.
"I think we had an expectation of Robin because his performance last year for Arsenal was sensational. We saw him last year and knew he could gel into the way our team was, and he has never disappointed us."
Indeed, Van Persie did not disappoint - he helped us lift the Premier League trophy in his very first season with Manchester United. That was also the last time we won the league.
