Man Utd midfielder Carrick: Van Persie volley one for the ages

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick hailed Robin van Persie's wonder goal against Aston Villa last night.

Van Persie followed Wayne Rooney's 40-yard pass, watching it drop 20 yards from goal before drilling a magnificent volley straight past Brad Guzan.

"It has to be right up there," said Carrick. "The movement for starters, then Wayne to pick him out with a great pass. The finish was textbook.

"There are not many people who can do that. Robin has had a terrific season. It is his first one here and if he carries on like this he will have a good career, that's for certain."
