Man Utd boss Ferguson hails Van Persie assists

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says there's more to Robin van Persie's game than just goals.

Ferguson is amazed by how Van Persie's all-round game has benefited his team.

"I have really lost count of our Dutchman's assists. It is quite remarkable how quickly he has settled at Old Trafford. It helped I think that he relished the move to Manchester and he is the consummate professional. He has a good lifestyle with a great sense of responsibility. For instance I have noticed the way he will speak to the young players and encourage them.

"That attitude is a real bonus for us. There is no doubt that he has moved us forward as a team and that the attacking and scoring is the strength of our team."
