London, Sep.2 (ANI): Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson insists his dream ticket of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney can form a deadly partnership in the Premier League this season.
o far, however, he has decided against starting his dynamic duo together, partly due to the array of talent he has with Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez making up a forward quartet Sir Alex has called his best since 1999.
Ferguson feels that Rooney and Van Persie can be as fearsome for United as Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole were 13 years ago.
The Sun quoted the Old Trafford chief, as saying: “Van Persie is flexible because he can play in different positions. He is such a mobile player, there are great options with him. And Wayne can play behind and he can play up.”
“Can Wayne and Robin play together? Yes, absolutely, no doubt about that,” he added.
Ferguson who takes his team to Southampton today, says his forwards give him great options. (ANI)
