Manchester United forward Robin van Persie sees huge activity boost to Official PFA Facebook page after impressive Manchester derby debut, say Digital Sports Group.
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 amount of 'People talking about' increasing by over 35% week on week. The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Manchester United striker since its 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 16 Premier League games for the Manchester giants. And getting the Red Devils out of some sticky situations in the process.
The Manchester United front man has made a string of impressive performances in recent weeks for the Red Devils, most notably scoring the winning goal in his Manchester derby debut. United were level with City at 2-2 when Van Persie stepped up to take a free kick just outside the box on the 92nd minuted. Van Persie struck the ball sweetly and saw his effort take a slight deflection off of former team mate Samir Nasri, putting the ball just beyond Joe Hart's reach and giving Manchester United a vital win against their rivals at the top of the Premier League table. United now boast a six point advantage over their 'noisy neighbours'.
