Van Persie happy he chose Man Utd over Man City

Robin van Persie is delighted he chose Manchester United over Manchester City. The Dutch striker, 29, has smashed 13 goals in 19 games since his £22million summer switch from Arsenal to Old Trafford.

Van Persie, who faces City at the Etihad tomorrow, said: "I made my mind up very quickly and I am coming into work with a big smile on my face every day.

"It is not really work, it is my hobby - I love football.

"But everyone has been so nice to me and I have been having the time of my life here.

"So I don't regret that - but of course in a derby you have lots of people involved - the fans and the players.

"Everyone is really committed and wants their team to win and we'll do all we can to win too."
