Robin van Persie can't wait to join United world class players


Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is excited at the prospect of playing with the players who joined during the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils host Queens Park Rangers on Sunday when the Premier League resumes and the Dutchman can't wait to play alongside the club's new arrivals.

"I can't wait to go and train and play with the world class players we have signed - wow," van Persie told The Daily Mirror.

"That feeling, that we are going to perform well, has only got stronger after the buying of players over the last weeks.

"I find it very exciting, the arrival of all those new players.

"For me personally, it's brilliant to go and play with some of the best players in the world.

"It's great that I can go and train and play with them every day."

At the age of 31, the Dutchman is one of the oldest players in the squad but he is determined to keep playing for as long as possible.

"I want to go on as long as possible," added van Persie.

"I want to go to the World Cup when I am 35, I want to play professional football until I am 40.

"Most probably, it will be for a less famous club by then, but I do want to play as long as I can.

"Every target I have set myself up until today in my career I have reached. So I am going to get the other targets, too."
