Good Guy Robin Van Persie Passes On No.9 Shirt For Next Season To Save Fans Money

By Chris Wright

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - Manchester United v Aston Villa - Old Trafford

This morning in “Good guy Robin van Persie” news, the Dutch striker has passed on the option of taking up the No.9 shirt at Manchester United next season as he doesn’t want fans that shelled out to get his No.20 replica jersey this season to feel jipped.

RVP told United Review:

“I think I’ll keep it. I have the option to take number nine but I don’t think I will do that. I’ll stick with what is right and what feels good.

“Also, I don’t want to be harsh on the fans who have got number 20 on their kit. I don’t want them to have to buy a new shirt.

“It’s been a good number for me and now I can at least celebrate the 20th trophy for another year. I’ll stick with it.”

So the question on everyone’s lips now is “WHAT THE HELL SHIRT IS FABIO GOING TO WEAR WHEN HE RETURNS FROM HIS LOAN AT QPR???!!!!???”
