Man Utd boss Ferguson thrilled with impact of Van Persie

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is delighted with the impact of Robin van Persie.

Chelsea were the biggest summer spenders, shelling out £80million.

But it is the £22m Fergie spent on Van Persie he hopes makes the biggest difference.

He added: "We bought him for that reason - to make a difference.

"His performances are getting better. Last week against Stoke and on Tuesday against Braga his movement was fantastic."
