Manchester United kicked off the 2013-14 Premier League with an impressive 4-1 win at Swansea on Saturday, but the Welsh home crowd arguably won the battle of supporters will an awesome comedy chant directed at Robin van Persie.
To recap, the Swansea-Man United fixture last season produced one of the more memorable moments of the season as Ashley Williams whacked a ball at Robin van Persie’s head which drew the following comment from Sir Alex Ferguson:
He (Williams) could have killed the lad (Van Persie) … he should be banned for a long time! [Watch Fergie's comments here.]
Swansea fans couldn’t help themselves from referencing that incident on Saturday when they got the opportunity to see Robin van Persie at the Liberty Stadium again, belting out the funny chant “Robin van Persie, we thought you were dead!”
