Digital Sports Group head of operations Matthew Tait has said the recent on field heroics of Manchester United's ₤24 million acquisition have made a huge impact to the strikers Official PFA Facebook page, with the total weekly reach increasing by over 20%. The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Manchester United striker since it's launch and is becoming more and more popular with each week that passes, with a rapidly growing community of fans keen to hear all the latest news on their favourite player. The official PFA Facebook page along with Robin van Persie 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 11 goals in 14 games in all competitions for the Manchester giants. Getting the Red Devils out of some sticky situations in the process.
The Manchester United front man has made a string of impressive appearances in recent weeks for the Red Devils, most notably against top of the table rivals Chelsea. Van Persie and United started the game at an incredible pace, scoring twice in the opening fifteen minutes with Van Persie shooting against the post and seeing his shot rebound into the goal off of Chelsea's David Luiz, the second of the goal was all his own making, firing the ball into the goal emphatically from Antonio Valencia's pull back on the right wing. Chelsea were back on level terms with goals either side of half-time but the crucial third goal came from United after RVP saw his smart shot stopped by Petr Cech with Hernandez pouncing on the rebound to grab the winner.
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.”
