Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic believes Robin van Persie has the quality to maintain the form shown in his early Old Trafford career for the foreseeable future, the Daily Mirror has reported.

After netting a hat-trick against Southampton on Sunday van Persie has now hit four goals in three games for his new club following his August move from Arsenal. The treble also took van Persie to three figures for goals in the Premier League and, the Mirror claims, exemplified why Sir Alex Ferguson sanctioned a £24m transfer fee for a player a year away from his 30th birthday.

Vidic added that from what he has seen of van Persie in his brief United career, he is certain that the Netherlands international has the qualities needed to be a success with the Red Devils. The former Serbia international said: “He is a fighter. He is not scared to play a hard game as well. We like him at United for that. He is not scared to receive the ball and have defenders on top of his back. This is important if you want be a top goal scorer [at United].

The centre-back went on to reveal that he has been surprised at just how quickly van Persie has settled in to his new club, crediting the easy transition to van Persie’s innate desire to score goals.
