Robin Van Persie stars in #5 Magazine skills video

Published 7 Comments

Manchester United forward Robin Van Persie is the latest superstar to enter Rio Ferdinand's #5 Players Lounge - and the Dutchman shows off his unbelievable technique for the cameras.

Alongside football freestyle gurus F2, Van Persie takes on crossbar challenges, free kick tests and skills tutorials for #5 Magazine - and even gives a quick lesson on mastering the art of the perfect free-kick.

He's not a bad teacher and clearly knows what he's talking about - remember the Manchester derby winning strike at the Etihad Stadium last season?

A quick question and answer session follows, with the Netherlands international revealing his top three favourite players - Maradona, Cryuff and Zidane - his best friend in football and his favourite thing to listen to before a game.

The F2 Freestylers aren't too bad either, and even recreate the United striker's memorable volley against Aston Villa at Old Trafford last term.

Check out the video of Van Persie in action above, and keep watching to see the Dutch star answer some questions from the F2 Freestylers...
