RVP learning from Chicarito

by Michelle Fortune , 11 December 2012

Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie believes he can learn just as much from Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck as they can from him.

Van Persie's arrival from Arsenal has impacted on Hernandez's appearances for United, but the former has been very impressed with his team-mate's attitude on and off the pitch.

The Mexican never fails to try his best for the club and has made a big impact whenever he has been included, either from the start or as a substitute.

Van Persie is full of admiration for Hernandez and believes he can learn a lot from the him and Welbeck.

"It goes both ways – I can learn from them as well," Van Persie told MUTV when asked if they were learning from him.

“For example, I love Chicharito’s enthusiasm. I love how he plays and trains and does his work off the pitch after training.

“A couple of weeks ago he wasn’t playing as much, but he was in the gym every day doing extra work, and that sets a big example for everyone.

“Danny, too. He’s not playing in his favourite position at the moment but we need him and he’s working hard.

“So when you have four strikers being so professional, it sets the tone for the others. Everyone realises we are all in it together and we all need to do our bit.”
