Manchester United striker Robin van Persie hails the team spirit of the newly-crowned Premier League champions
Robin van Persie has hailed Manchester United’s “unbelievable” team spirit after the Red Devils won a 13th Premier League crown.
Van Persie, 29, won his first top-flight title as United were crowned champions with four games remaining after their rivals struggled to keep pace.
Sir Alex Ferguson, who is set to retire at the end of the season, signed Van Persie in a £24m deal last summer and the striker reckons the Red Devils were deserved winners.
“This team is unbelievable,” Van Persie told MUTV.
“Every team of champions starts with a good atmosphere and the idea that every single person wants to share success and everybody wants to play their part in it.
“That is how you achieve big things and win trophies. It is like a puzzle that needs to add up so that in the end, the final puzzle means trophies.”
He added: “It is a long road. You do not win it in one week, it is over a whole year when you have to overcome lots of difficulties in games.
“We work day-in, day-out on stuff you want to achieve in the game. If, in the end, you win the Premier League it is a massive feeling.
“It is not a tournament. You play 38 games, so to win it after 34 says it all. It shows that we were the ones who deserved to win it.”
