Van Persie and Manchester United deliver further #tears4piers with present for Piers Morgan

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has had the last laugh in an ongoing Twitter feud with Piers Morgan, sending a personalised photo of himself with the Premier League trophy to the chat-show host's Beverly Hills address.

Morgan, a renowned Arsenal fan with over 3.5 million followers on Twitter, was enraged by the Dutchman's decision to leave the Gunners for the Red Devils last summer and, despite a personal campaign of goading and sniping at a player whom he felt only joined Sir Alex Ferguson's side for money, the forward hit back in the most gratifying of manners.

15/8 Man Utd are 15/8 with Bet365 to win the Premier League in 2013-14

The former editor of the News of the World and now host of 'Piers Morgan Live' and 'Piers Morgan's Life Stories' posted a picture of the photo of Van Persie. "So. I just received a package from Manchester United press office. 'Robin wanted you to have to this.'," he wrote in accompaniment.

"The package contained a double sided framed photograph. Of Van Pursestrings kissing the Premier League trophy."

The picture was signed by Van Persie on both sides, reading: "Piersy my man, thanks for all the support! You made this day even more special! All the best, Van Pursestrings.

"Great to be a champ.. so many #Tears4Piersy," it continued on the other side of the photo.

However, in typical brash fashion, Morgan responded: "I will of course afford Van Pursestrings' gift the respect it deserves. And use it as my loo doorstop in Beverly Hills..."
