(PRWEB UK) 30 March 2013
Digital Sports Group today announced that The PFA Facebook fan page of Robin van Persie has broken the 30% daily growth barrier making it the fastest growing Robin van Persie page on Facebook.
The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Manchester United striker since it's launch and now boasts a vibrant and rapidly growing community of fans. The 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.
Robin van Persie is a gifted striker who joined Arsenal from Feyenoord in May 2004.
Blessed with outstanding technical ability and a powerful and accurate shot, he has developed into one of the finest attacking talents in Europe. With the sale of Thierry Henry, he took on the mantle as goal getter for Arsenal and has thrived.
Leading the line has proved no problem and goals have arrived in their plenty, but niggling injuries have often restricted his availability. He had a quiet time in the first half of 2010-11 as he recovered from the World Cup, but was in superb form from the new year, netting a Premier League hat-trick against Wigan and finishing as the Gunners’ leading scorer for the season.
In August 2011 he was appointed as Arsenal's club captain after the departure of Cesc Fabregas. Robin is also a key player for the Netherlands, for whom he has won more than 50 caps, including an appearance in the 2010 World Cup final where they went down 1-0 to Spain.
Robin was triple Player of the Year in 2011/12 winning the PFA Players Player, The PFA Fans' Player and the FWA Footballer of the Year awards. In August 2012 he signed for Manchester United.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say, “ Robin van Persie really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Tottenham and England 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.
