The fact that Robin van Persie has featured so prominently in Manchester United's new kit promotion and launch reflects how well he has settled in with the serial Premier League champions. Since the launch of the 2013/2014 home kit we've seen the Manchester United mans official PFA Facebook account go from strength to strength said Digital Sports Group's Matt Tait, with impressive statistical increases across the board. Including a 50% rise in the 'People Talking About This' section. The official PFA Facebook page along with the Robin van Persie PFA player profile on football.co.uk provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
After listening to 'the little boy inside' him and moving to Manchester United, Robin Van Persie has been prolific in-front of goal, scoring 26 goals in 38 Premier League games for the Manchester giants.
The Netherlands international has featured heavily in Manchester United's recent 2013/14 kit launch promotions and fans of the Red Devils will be hoping van Persie can bring as much success to Old Trafford in the new strip, as he did with the old.
United’s new home shirt for 2013/14 takes inspiration from the club’s success and Manchester’s industrial heritage.
The kit features the return of the black collar, a popular and evocative symbol ever since Eric Cantona wore it upturned in the 1990s. This season’s tailored, button-down collar boasts three buttons at the front and one at the back, a modern twist that’s also intrinsically Mancunian.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Robin van Persie really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Manchester United this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”
“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Robin van Persie.”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
