Media Release: MUST response to Robin van Persie signing for Manchester United FC
MUST - the Manchester United Supporters Trust - statement on the news of the signing of Robin van Persie
Duncan Drasdo, chief executive of MUST said: "It's really exciting news for us as United fans to see a top quality player, in Robin van Persie, sign for Manchester United. Of course we have always backed Sir Alex Ferguson's exceptional management skills to the hilt so this is great news for our members and Manchester United fans around the world."
"Robin van Persie is quoted today as saying 'Manchester United breathes football. This club is the perfect match for me' . That is exactly how we feel as supporters too. We live and breath Manchester United with a passion. We support the team and defend the club through thick and thin. We are looking forward now hoping for a spectacular start to the season at Everton on Monday night and perhaps a debut goal for RVP would be the icing on the cake"
