|Manchester United striker Robin van Persie poses with the Premier League trophy|
Anyone who follows Morgan on Twitter will know that the CNN talk-show host has been vocal in his criticism of van Persie's decision to join Manchester United, insisting on referring to him as "Van Pursestrings".
However, it looks as though the Dutchman has had the last laugh.

'Piersy my man, thanks for all the support! You made this day even more special! All the best, Van Pursestrings.' twitter.com/piersmorgan/st…— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) May 24, 2013
Morgan, who has over 3.5 million followers on Twitter, has already found a home for his gift.
I will of course afford Van Pursestrings' gift the respect it deserves. And use it as my loo doorstop in Beverly Hills... @persie_official— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) May 24, 2013
In fairness to Morgan, he took the prank in good spirits.
After all the grief I've given Van Pursestrings, he's allowed a whack back.I'll just have to take it on the chins.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) May 24, 2013
