Manchester United striker Robin van Persie admits despite all his experience he still gets lifted by some of the younger members of the squad.

The 29-year-old played in the last World Cup final with Holland and has spent more than eight years in the Barclays Premier League, but a move to Old Trafford in the summer has kept him fresh, with the Dutchman singling out the younger duo of Javier Hernandez, 24, and Danny Welbeck, 22.

"It goes both ways - I can learn from them as well," Van Persie told MUTV. "For example, I love Chicharito's (Hernandez's) enthusiasm, I love how he plays and trains and does his work off the pitch after training."
