‘It was a dream!’ - Van Persie describes THAT volley vs Aston Villa

The Dutch striker reminisces over one of his most historic strikes that sealed the Red Devils' last league triumph

Robin van Persie has described his memorable volley for Manchester United against Aston Villa that helped win the Premier League title in 2013.

The Dutchman hit a first-half hat-trick at Old Trafford to seal the trophy for the Red Devils, but it was his second strike that stood out.

Wayne Rooney hit a long ball towards him from around the halfway line and the striker smashed in a sweet left-footed volley from the edge of the box.
