Manchester United were crowned Premier League champions in 2012/13 for 13th time with Van

Persie scoring 26 goals in his first season at Old Trafford, which also landed him the golden boot award as the leagues leading scorer.

After 27-years as Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson finally retired with David Moyes taking over as the new manager, but there is a feeling in the camp that a smooth transition will be made in the pursuit of further top honors.

In the Daily Mirror interview Van Persie said: “I have a feeling that we can do much more and that we can win many more trophies.

“I’ve had a year to work with everyone and now the whole coaching staff is changing, which makes it a new challenge.

“I’ve got to know the players through and through and I’ve a feeling they have a lot more in them. A whole lot more.

“The season began as a nice challenge but you never know how these things will turn out.”

On Ferguson’s decision to retire RVP added: “I’d have preferred it if he’d stayed on a few more years. But I understand his decision.

“I’m even prouder that I could work under him for a year. I could see he was a legendary man.”
