Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen says their dressing room leaders are all football mad.
The Dutchman says Robin van Persie has found kindred spirits at Old Trafford.
âRyan Giggs and Paul Scholes just love football. Like ÂLionel Messi, they donât care if they are playing in a stadium filled with 100,000 people or in the local park.
"I mean this in a positive way, they are football animals. Football is the only thing that occupies their life and, since the Âbeginning of the season, they have been joined by one more football-mad guy in Van Persie.
âThe fact that he chose United shows how much he loves the game. He is a guy who thinks about everything. He is driven by his love for the game.
âAll Robin is focused on is success.
âHe has a massive desire to win. I know because he could have earned so much more money elsewhere.â
