Manchester United and Netherlands striker Robin Van Persie is confident that Manchester United wil finish in top 4 this season.
Van Persie is confident United will finish in top 4 once Van Gaal’s method fully clicks and players return from injury. The Dutch international is confident they have enough firepower up front to finish in the top 4. United have signed the likes Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao in the summer. United have already leaked 13 goals in 7 games, but Van Persie believes that the team can build on from the 2-1 victory against West Ham United.
Van Persie said: ‘Our aim this year is to be in the top four. We have a great manager, great staff, great fans.
‘Everything is in place to be up there competing with the very best teams. I think we can do it and we will.’
‘Only me and Daley Blind knew how he works,’ said the Dutch striker. ‘He’s trying to get his philosophy into a lot of new players. It’s very demanding in a good way as you have to be focused every single day of the sessions or the meeting.
‘He wants players to get involved in the meetings too. That’s a bit of the Dutch thing, everybody gets involved in the project.
‘Some training sessions are incredible and we are showing that in games as well.
‘We had a setback against Leicester (they lost 5-3) but to win in circumstances like the weekend sends a message and shows that even in these difficult games we can win.
‘Now we have to extend that and make at least the top four.’
Van Persie was speaking at the launch of United`s first global sustainable technology partner Abengoa.
