Man Utd v Arsenal: Van Persie switch was 'courageous' - Mikael Silvestre

Former Manchester United and Arsenal defender Mikael Silvestre says Robin van Persie's move from the Emirates Stadium to Old Trafford was "courageous".

Van Persie faces the Gunners on Saturday for the first time since joining Sir Alex Ferguson's team in the summer.

The Dutch international has scored nine goals in 12 appearances so far for the Red Devils, and Silvestre believes his strike partnership with Wayne Rooney will only get better.
