The Red Devils have endured a disastrous campaign and look set to miss out on European football altogether, but the Dutchman is adamant they will recover
Robin van Persie has warned the rest of the Premier League that Manchester United will re-establish themselves as the dominant force in English football.
United have endured a torrid season which cost the job of Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor David Moyes and appears set to condemn the club to a campaign without European football next term.
But Van Persie, who scored United’s third and final goal in Tuesday’s 3-1 win over Hull City at Old Trafford, is adamant this season’s struggles will prove only a temporary setback.
At the end of an interview with MUTV, the Dutchman promised: “Trust me, we’ll will be back. Trust me. Save this interview!”
Tuesday was an emotional evening at Old Trafford as club captain Nemanja Vidic came on for his final home appearance for the club before departing for Serie A giants Inter this summer.
Interim manager Ryan Giggs also brought himself on for the final 20 minutes of the match amid ongoing speculation surrounding his future at the club as a player and coach.
The veteran Welshman replaced youngster Tom Lawrence, given the chance to make his senior United debut along with striker James Wilson, who marked the occasion with two well-taken goals.
Afterwards Lawrence tweeted: “Wow what a feeling that was tonight and loved every minute of it! Coming off too be replaced by a legend like giggs #whatafeeling”
