FERGIE HAILS VAN PERSIE (SIR ALEX FERGUSON AMVULIA KOFIA VAN PERSIE)
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admitted he was stunned by Robin van Persie’s horror penalty in the 3-2 win at Southampton – but will let the hat-trick hero off.With United 2-1 down Van Persie tried to chip a penalty over Kelvin Davies, got it all wrong and the keeper saved it easily but he scored all three goals – the winner in
injury time – as United secured a dramatic victory.”I was surprised because every time I have seen him take a penalty he rattles it in the corners,” the United boss said of Van Persie, who reached 100 Premier League goals with his third. “He made up for it, though. He had six attempts on goal and was a real threat. His first goal was absolutely magnificent – the control and then to bury it away. It was a really, really good goal.
“His header (the second) was excellent too, but he has been a terrific player for us. I just thought we started the game so well and went a goal down when we were controlling the game. That puts you on the back foot a bit.”We got an equaliser at the right time and that gave us time to organise ourselves and make sure we controlled the second half. “It didn’t go that way and I thought Southampton for the first 20 minutes were very good.” SKY NEWS
