Robin van Persie has spoken to the official site about training at Manchester United.

Which part of training do you enjoy the most?

I like short games when we play four against four or five against five in short, four or five minute-games. We also do a lot of finishing drills some very nice ones, especially when we work on quality finishing when, instead of doing four or five reps (repetitions) in a row, we do just one or two and then have a rest.
