Robin van Persie shows incredible skills - with a scarf

Published Add your comment

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie looked in buoyant mood after the 3-1 victory over Hull City on Tuesday night. The Dutchman had just scored his first goal since suffering a knee injury in March, while rumours were rife that Louis van Gaal - his national team manager and friend - was poised to be appointed as David Moyes’ successor.

After the game, the 30-year-old told a reporter that the good times were coming back, and even asked his interviewer to save the video for future reference. Van Persie’s beaming smile had returned - the weight of the Moyes era lifted from his shoulders.

It’s not been a vintage campaign for Van Persie, even if he has still managed to score 18 goals in 27 appearances for the Red Devils this term, but the Dutchman showed supporters that his nifty footwork hasn’t deserted him during the team’s lap of honour at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

A fan threw a scarf onto the pitch and Van Persie, before the proper football man that he is, started doing some keep-ups with it - rather than handing it to the nearest steward.

The Netherlands international somehow juggled with it just like a real ball before volleying it stylishly into the crowd - much to the Manchester United supporters’ delight.
