Man Utd star Van Persie happy to wind up Piers Morgan

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has happily taken the mick out of Arsenal celebrity fan Piers Morgan.

The struggling CNN host branded the former Arsenal captain 'van Pursestrings' on Twitter.

Van Persie sent a package containing a double-sided picture of the Dutch striker kissing the Premier League trophy with one message reading : "Piersy my man, thanks for all the support! You made this day even more special! All the best, Van Pursestrings."
