Robin van Persie has backed incoming Manchester United manager David Moyes to be a success at the club.

Moyes was confirmed as United's new manager last week and has agreed a six-year deal to replace Sir Alex Ferguson, who retired after the Red Devils' incredible 5-5 draw with West Brom on Sunday.

The outgoing Everton boss will officially take charge at Old Trafford on July 1st, but was at United's Carrington training ground early this week to meet with staff, and Van Persie does not see the change in manager having an impact in the club's pursuit of silverware next season.

"Everybody wants to work for each other and share the success," he told MUTV.

"I'm 100 per cent sure we will play for trophies every year and, hopefully, win a few every year. That's our standard for this team.

"This is a great team and, hopefully, we can go for even more trophies. I'm sure we can. Of course, we get a new manager next year and everybody is looking forward to that.

"It's a new challenge for everyone. We'll have a nice break now and then we go again."
