Ferguson gushes about Van Persie's debut Man Utd goal

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is excited about his new striker Robin van Persie.

Fergie was still purring yesterday about Van Persie's stunning volleyed leveller after 10 minutes against Fulham.

He said: "Excellent goal, tremendous timing. Out of the blue.

"You don't really expect him to draw back his foot like that and it bounced a little bit in front of him too. It was a great goal."
