Van Persie â€“ who turned 30 this week â€“ says the taste of success has not diminished his desire to win even more.
â€śTo come here after being at Arsenal for so long was a big decision, and thankfully it worked out very well for me,â€ť he told Nuts Magazine. â€śI got to work with a great manager in his final season, play with some great, great players, score goals and win the Premier League.
â€śThat was a dream and it came true. Iâ€™m even hungrier this season than I was last season. Of course I was delighted when we won the title but there was a bit of relief in my emotions too.
â€śIâ€™d waited so long to reach that level and was desperate for it to happen. Now I have one title, I want more.
â€śItâ€™s an incredible feeling to know youâ€™ve won one of the most difficult football competitions in the world. I need that feeling again.
â€śIâ€™m just committed to always improving. I should be coming to an age where Iâ€™m playing my best football, so I want to score more goals, play better for the team and win trophies.
â€śIâ€™m never satisfied. This will be a big year for me with all the silverware we have a chance of winning and also the build up to the World Cup.â€ť
