Legendary Nistelrooy says Van Persie will help Man U land PL title this season

/Ruud-Van-Nistelroo

London, Nov 28 : Former Manchester United striker Ruud Van Nistelrooy believes if fellow Dutchman Robin Van Persie continues scoring the way he has done so far then the Old Trafford outfit will win the Premier League this season.
"As he's proving right now, Robin IS making the difference. If he can keep going like this through the whole season then I can see United landing another title," the Sun quoted Nistelrooy, as saying.
Van Nistelrooy played alongside Van Persie for Holland so knows exactly what United's summer signing is all about, and that is why he considered the 22 million pounds manager Sir Alex Ferguson shelled out on the 29-year-old Arsenal star was never going to be a gamble.
Van Nistelrooy said: "He's proved those people wrong already. I was close to him in the national team and was convinced of his qualities then. He fits into United's playing style. He's everywhere, involved in the play and the finishing - so that makes him special."
RVP has made a stunning start at United with 11 goals from 17 games already as the Red Devils have powered to the top of the league.
"I spoke to him a while ago and congratulated him on his fantastic start. I wished him well and told him to continue like this," Nistelrooy said.
"It feels like he's been here for ever. He started scoring, got his first goal quickly and has never stopped since. It's important for a striker when he goes to a new club to start getting goals," he added. (ANI)
