Robin van Persie scores stunning free-kick for Fenerbahce

Published 1 Comments

It's fair to say Robin van Persie's short time in Fenerbahce has not hit the levels expected when he first departed Manchester United

The Dutch forward was the marquee signing of the summer in the Turkish Super Lig following his £3.84 million move from Old Trafford. 

However, having spent a lot of time on the bench in his final season with the Red Devils, the 32-year-old has continued that trend at the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium.

The former Arsenal forward has still chipped in with three league goals for Fener despite only making the same amount of starts.

Despite this, Holland's all-time top goalscorer has had to contend with playing second fiddle to Brazilian Fernandao, much to his displeasure.

But he was handed his fourth start by manager Vítor Pereira for the game with Kayserispor and showed exactly why he feels he should be the star striker.

On the half hour mark, Van Persie lined up a free-kick from all of 30-yards and smashed it with his left foot, leaving Kayacan Erdogan helpless.

The forward has recently been linked with a surprise move to Barcelona. If he can produce moments of quality like this then he would be a fantastic impact substitute at the Camp Nou.

He may be determined to make a success of his time in Turkey, given the euphoria that accompanied his signature, but the lure of one final hoorah at the Catalan club may be too good to turn down.
