The story of the Dutch footballer who plays for Manchester UnitedIn the summer of 2012 Robin Van Persie, or RVP as he is affectionately known by his fans, made the controversial move from Arsenal to Manchester United. As one of the Premier League's most lethal strikers, he became the Gunner's eighth all-time top scorer with 132 goals, taking on the captain's armband in the process. But on August 15, 2012, Arsenal shockingly announced they would be selling RVP to Manchester United. Needing to win the hearts of his new fans over, it was important the Dutch striker get off to a flying start--which he duly did, scoring with his very first shot for the club against Fulham and then bagging a hattrick against Southampton a week later. Despite his exceptional first season with United, RVP still commands respect among Gunners fans, and indeed around the globe, especially in his home country of the Netherlands, as his footballing prowess overcomes fierce club loyalties. Part of the Dutch side who were World Cup runners-up in 2010, and with more than 70 appearances for his country, Robin Van Persie is one of the modern footballing greats. This is his incredible story.--Provided by the publisher.
