Man Utd start not enough for hungry van Persie

Robin van Persie is not content with his impressive start to life as a Manchester United player.

The Dutch striker has netted 13 goals in 19 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils since joining from Arsenal in the summer and although he admits he is flying, he wants to produce much more for Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

"When you are wanted by everyone it gives you wings," van Persie told MUTV.

"I am happy here and everyone looks very happy to have me here.

"But I am not satisfied. If you look at the stats, 13 goals in 19 games, it is OK.

"But I want better and more. I want more goals, more assists.

"I want to go for everything that it is possible this year."
