Manchester United striker Robin van Persie reflects on his Feyenoord career with Instagram post
Robin van Persie appeared to be in a reflective mood on Thursday as the Manchester United striker shared a picture of himself playing for Feyenoord 11 years ago on Instagram.
The Netherlands international moved to Arsenal from the Dutch club in May 2004 after four years in the senior team.
Van Persie then made the controversial switch from the Gunners to join rivals Manchester United in August 2012 and helped Sir Alex Ferguson’s men win the Premier League title.
Van Persie posted the picture above on Instagram and wrote: “Throwback 2003 good memories. Good luck tonight Feyenoord vs Sevilla #EL”
The 31-year-old forward is yet to score for Louis van Gaal’s side this season despite making three Premier League starts for the Red Devils.
United notched up their first league win of the season on Sunday as they thrashed Queens Park Rangers 4-0.
