Vine videos of Robin van Persie’s hat-trick for Manchester United v Olympiakos

Robin van Persie was the hero for Manchester United against Olympiakos.

Van Persie, who has been below par in recent months as Manchester United have struggled, came back to form at precisely the right time against the Greeks in the Champions League.

RVP scored his first ever Champoins League hat-trick, before the Dutchman left the field on a stretcher in injury time at the end of the match.

Van Persie opened with a first half penalty, before the Dutchman combined with Wayne Rooney for a second on the stroke of halftime.

Van Persie’s best goal was his last: a sweet free-kick from 25-yards early in the second half.
