Manchester United striker Robin van Persie believes Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure from Old Trafford will not negatively affect the Red Devils’ fortunes.
The Dutchman has been impressed by new boss David Moyes this summer and fully expects the club to be at the top of the table once again by May.
The new Premier League season is just one week away and Moyes is yet to make many waves in the transfer market to improve his side.
Van Persie is set to start for United at Wembley tomorrow in the Charity Shield and he believes that won’t be the only trophy the Red Devils win this season.
“Sir Alex is a huge presence, but already the new manager has come in and impressed everybody greatly,” Van Persie told the Express.
“There’s a new coaching set-up but the attitude of the players remains identical.
“I know he is a good manager who did an excellent job at Everton. His teams were always mentally strong and united, which is hard to play against.
“Now we can see his abilities and positive approach in training. I can say already that I’m going to enjoy working with him.”
“To come here after being at Arsenal for so long was a big decision, and thankfully it worked out very well for me,” he told Nuts Magazine.
“I got to work with a great manager in his final season, play with some great, great players, score goals and win the Premier League.
“That was a dream and it came true. I’m even hungrier this season than I was last season.”
