Robin van Persie revealed the sad postscript to his 17th goal of the season for Manchester United.

Van Persie struck in the final minute to seal a 2-0 win for West Brom before lifting his shirt to reveal the message: `rip tchuna we will never forget you` and it was confirmed the message related to a close friend of the Dutchman, who died on Friday.

"He is a fantastic player. He came on and changed the game for us," said Ferguson of Van Persie. "Every time the ball came up to him he got hold of it and turned on them. They were having to go back to their box all the time and he has done well."
