Facebook fans sink Paddy with RVP Money-Back special

DREAM TEAM: RVP breaks Man City’s – and Paddy’s heart – in the Manchester Derby on Sunday

More than half a million Facebook fans voted for it and Robin Van Persie’s last-gasp free-kick against Manchester City left Paddy making his biggest Premier League refund this year. 

United were 2-0 up at half-time thanks to two goals from Wayne Rooney that left the Citizens stunned at the Etihad before Yaya Toure and Pablo Zabaleta’s equaliser for City set up a tense  finish.

But Van Persie’s curling free-kick in the final minutes sank City’s proud home record… and broke Paddy’s heart.

“Alex Ferguson’s inspired signing RVP has been hitting us in the pocket all year and our Facebook fans certainly chose the right Money-Back special to inflict maximum damage,” Paddy said.

“But good luck to them — it was a fitting way to end a thrilling Manchester Derby.”

United are now 8/15 favourites in Paddy Power’s outright betting to regain the Premier League title they lost to City in the final seconds of the final game last season.

Van Persie’s free-kick in the dying minutes won the game for United and left Paddy emptying his pockets to the tune of half a million, making it the most expensive Premier League payout off the year.
