Who's the most popular player in the English Premier League? If you go by the number of shirts he sells, Dutchman Robin Van Persie
tops the list.
In the kitbag.com
ranking of the best-selling jerseys,
Van Persie's Manchester United jersey was the top seller globally, beating out jerseys of three other United players.
That should come as no surprise, given the worldwide reach of
Manchester United, the reigning EPL champion.
Van Persie's Manchester United jersey, moreover, was the most-sold jersey in England by a wide margin, cornering 25.4 percent of the market
for EPL jersey sales -- three times more than the Steven Gerrard
, who was No. 2 on the list, and more than the next four players combined. Global top-selling EPL jerseys (2012-13): 1. Robin van Persie
(Manchester United) 2.
(Manchester United) 3. Shinji Kagawa
(Manchester United) 4. Sergio Aguero
