Van Persie reveals title relief
Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck. But Van Persie does not see that as a threat to his place and believes a bigger squad can help him achieve his ambitions with the club. "The more quality players we bring the better," he said. "And even more fun. "I trust (Ferguson's) judgement. The manager knows what is good for the team." Van Persie's signing raised eyebrows in the summer as it has been rare for Ferguson to spend big on players in their late-20s but the Scot's assistant Mike Phelan has hailed his impact this season. "Robin has been a great addition to Manchester United Football Club," he told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme. "We knew what we were signing when we brought him to the club. "He's come in with an expectation of achieving something and that's important when you come to Manchester United. "You've got to want to win, you've got to want to develop even more than where you are at the moment and I think Robin has taken on another part of his game. "He does study the game but so do other players and Robin has achieved something that he's tried to achieve for numerous years and we're pleased to have him with us." He added: "We all know what his talent is and he's brought that to us. "We knew he could score many goals, we knew he had the quality to entertain a crowd and there's no better crowd and no better stadium to do that in than Old Trafford. "I think everybody has reacted to him within the club. The supporters have enjoyed his highs. "He had a spell during the season when he was a little bit barren but he kept going and we kept playing him and his quality has shown through."
