Man Utd ace Van Persie: Scholes was unbelievable

Manchester United's hat-trick hero Robin van Persie says Paul Scholes was the catalyst for their comeback at Southampton. Van Persie admitted to being a relieved man while he praised the efforts of Scholes.

"It was a good feeling afterwards," he told Sky Sports 1.

"I got a bit of luck with the second goal, and then at the end...

"I'm very disappointed with the penalty. When that happens at 2-1 down, you can't take a penalty like that. Something went wrong big time.

"I have to say a big thank you to Paul Scholes.

"Every single pass he hit was the right one. It was unbelievable. He is man of the match for me."
