Welcome to Old Trafford Robin van Persie

Nicodemus Minde
The social media was a buzz yesterday when a statement from both Manchester United and Arsenal football clubs confirmed that both parties had reached an agreement for a fee for the want away striker Robin van Persie. Arsenal fans were quick to label their star striker as a traitor and directed much insults at him. I don't know why they insults a player who wants to be of a great club of Man United caliber. A club that is an epitome of success and great history. As a United fan, am so happy with the arrival of van Persie. This a clear statement of intent from a club that just lost the title from fierce rivals, Manchester City. His signature will not only strengthen the side, but also act a psychological boost for the Red Devils. With the acquisition of Japanese play maker from Dortmund Shinji Kagawa, then Manchester United means business. Sometimes football is about mentality, and trust me Sir Alex Ferguson has won part one of this psychology battle. The trip to Everton on Monday night on the first day of the new season will signal a rejuvenated aura of optimism and strength. Robin van Persie has made an excellent choice, we say: Welcome to Old Trafford, the theater of dreams.
