Man Utd ace Van Persie: I'll stick with No20

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie won't be changing his No20 shirt next season.

When the Dutchman joined the Reds he said he chose the no.20 shirt because he was determined to help the club chase a 20th league title.

"I think I'll keep it," he said. "I have the option to take no.9 but I don't think I'll do that. I'll stick with what is right and what feels good.

"Also, I don't want to be harsh to the fans who have no.20 on their kit. I don't want them to have to buy a new shirt. It's been a good number for me and now I can at least celebrate the 20th trophy for another year. I'll stick with it."
