English legendary striker Alan Shearer is one of Robin Van Persie’s biggest fans when it comes to his record of 36 goals in only one calendar year. Robin is about to break that record and Shearer couldn’t be happier about that.
“ROBIN VAN PERSIE will take one of my records away from me before the end of the month. “
“I’m pretty sure of that and I’ll be the first to congratulate him.”
“He will beat my total of 36 Premier League goals in a calendar year — a record, by the way, I was unaware of until it was mentioned to me on Match of the Day at the weekend. “
“I set that mark back in 1995, when I was with Blackburn.”
“But records are there to be broken and I can think of no better striker than the Dutchman to write his name in the history books. “
With 4 games still to be played in the Premiership this year Robin has a big chance to break the record. With 33 goals so far, he only needs 4 more and if he will continue the run he’s on that will prove to be no problem for the Dutchman. Do you think he’ll break the record?
