Van Persie: I knew Man Utd move would bring silverware

Robin van Persie was always confident of winning trophies when signing for Manchester United.

Van Persie's decision to leave the North London club at which he was captain and talisman appears to have been vindicated.

"I wouldn't have moved if I'd had doubts. Instead, from day one I was almost certain we'd win trophies - not in a couple of years but this year. I saw the players training, I saw the way they behaved, the way they lived, their mentality, the way the staff worked, the way the manager and the staff acted... When all those elements combine you end up with a team of champions."
