Van Persie enjoyed a glittering career, starting off at Excelsior before moving to Feyenoord.

He won the UEFA Cup in 2002 before securing a switch to Arsenal two years later.

RVP netted 132 times in 278 games under Arsene Wenger during an eight-year period.

But he won just a single FA Cup, prompting him to join Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United in 2012.

The striker netted 26 league goals in his debut season to win the title.

And Van Persie ended up with 58 goals in 105 games during a three-year spell before moving to Turkey with Fenerbahce.
