van Persie, 29, has made a stunning start to his Old Trafford career, scoring 21 goals, including 10 in his last 10 games, but Fergie reckoned that United are not overly reliant on the Dutchman.
According to the Sun, the Scot said that he did not go along with the idea that they have become a one-man team.
He said that there was a time in history when Eric Cantona kept them in contention with his goals when a few others were off the boil, but things are quite different now.
He added that Javier Hernandez has weighed in with 12 goals while Wayne Rooney is currently on nine.
According to the report, two defenders, Johnny Evans and Patrice Evra, have chipped in with eight between them so it doesn't stand up to see us as a one-man band overly dependent on Van Persie, brilliant as he has been at both making and taking goals.
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini earlier this month had said that missing out on signing Van Persie could cost his side the title.
And Fergie agrees with his rival that the 22 million pounds hit man could be the difference come May. (ANI)
