Van Persie's hat-trick 'relief'
- From the section Football
Manchester United forward Robin Van Persie admits "relief" after his match-winning hat-trick atones for his missed penalty in a 3-2 Premier League win over Southampton.
The Dutchman headed home a 90th minute winner to complete his hat-trick having twice drawn his new side level with left-footed strikes.
Van Persie heaps praise on the "world class" Paul Scholes for the midfielder's contribution after coming on as a second-half substitute.
