Ferdinand confident van Persie can continue scoring form for Man Utd

Rio Ferdinand has no doubts Robin van Persie is not just a one-season wonder for Manchester United. The Dutchman netted 26 goals last season to help lead Sir Alex Ferguson's side to a 20th league championship and earn the Premier League's Golden Boot title for a second consecutive season.

"Robin doesn't want to be remembered as a one-season wonder," said Ferdinand.

"He doesn't want people to think about him as just coming here, doing well in that one season but not being able to continue.

"He wants to do it over a number of years. He is on course to be remembered in that way.

"Robin is not a short-term kind of guy. It is all long-term for him. There is a thought process behind everything he does.

"It is all geared towards him being as good as he can be on a weekend.

"In that sense, he is just doing what you expect. He is a top player."
