Van der Sar: Man Utd players display Fergie never-say-die spirit

Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar isn't surprised to see the Premier League title returning to Old Trafford.

According to Van der Sar, it's confirmation for his fellow Dutchman Robin van Persie that he made the right decision leaving Arsenal for Old Trafford.

"At the beginning of the season, United conceded a lot of goals and always ended up scoring in the last minute, Van Persie popping up with a header or a free-kick," he said.

"They have shown consistency and determination, and that is what all Ferguson's teams have shown. It's a never-give-up mentality. Other teams started dropping points and they kept going."
