Manchester United striker Robin van Persie believes the club need to continue going forward with the same title-winning mentality, despite losing long-serving manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The 2012/13 season will always be remembered as Ferguson's final campaign as the United manager, putting an end to his 26-year tenure at Old Trafford and he has been replaced by ex-Everton boss David Moyes.

Sir Alex ended his managerial career on a high after guiding United to their 13th Premier League title in comfortable fashion and he will now take a role as an ambassador for the club.

One of Ferguson's last ever signings for United was Arsenal striker Robin van Persie and in his first year at Old Trafford, he managed to win his first Premier League title and also finished as the top-goalscorer in the Premier League.

Van Persie only got to work with the United legend for just one season and he has stated that the club must continue winning trophies under their new manager David Moyes.

Van Persie told reporters: "I want more now. I want more medals now because I now know how it feels. It gives you the taste for more. Hopefully next year we can win the double, or even more.

"It will be a new era and I am looking forward to it. It is part of our job. We have to deal with a new situation. That is how it is.

"First we can enjoy what we have achieved this year. Then you start to think about next season and, of course, we are looking forward to it.

"We have a new manager - maybe new players coming in. Wilfried Zaha is coming from Crystal Palace and there may be more, there may be some leaving, no-one knows.

"It is a challenge and everybody knows what our standard is. We want to win the league again and then, hopefully, add one or two trophies to that."
