Robin Van Persie retires from football

Former Arsenal and Manchester United man Robin van Persie retired from football today after his Feyenoord side lose 2-0 against ADO Den Haag

The curtain came down on Robin van Persie’s glittering career with his Feyenoord side defeated 2-0 by ADO Den Haag on Sunday.

The 35-year-old made his final career appearance in Feyenoord’s last home league match of the season rather than round off his career in Wednesday’s away fixture against Fortuna Sittard.

He hit the woodwork in the first half and was substituted off in stoppage time, where he received a rapturous reception from the Feyenoord supporters. 

They held a banner aloft during the match to pay tribute, reading ‘legends are forever’.

Van Persie started his career with Feyenoord and rejoined them in January 2018. 

He has kept up an impressive scoring record in that time, netting 25 times in 49 appearances in his second spell.

The striker also bows out of football as the Premier League’s highest scoring Dutchman with 144 goals from spells with Arsenal and Manchester United.

Van Persie spent eight years with Arsenal, who he left Feyenoord for in 2004. He won the FA Cup under Arsene Wenger before leaving for United in 2012.

There, he spearheaded United’s charge to Premier League glory in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season as manager at Old Trafford.

On the international scene, Van Persie scored 50 goals in 102 appearances for Holland.

He started the 2010 World Cup final, which Holland lost 1-0 to Spain in South Africa.
