Man Utd ace Van Persie targets Champions League glory

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie admits he's eyeing Champions League glory next season.

The Dutchman says their quarterfinal defeat to Real Madrid still burns.

"I would love to. I think we showed we can compete with the best. If you look at the game against Real [Madrid], for example, everything was organised perfectly. Our game-plan was working. We were winning so it was a bit harsh how we lost that game but it's part of football as well. If you want to be a winner, first you have to deal with disappointments. If you look at the whole club, it's full of winners. Everyone knows how to win and everyone works hard to win and I love that."
