Robin Van Persie Likely to Retire Next Year, after Glittering Career



FORMER ARSENAL AND MANCHESTER UNITED STRIKER ROBIN VAN PERSIE HAS REVEALED HE IS LIKELY TO RETIRE AT THE END OF THE SEASON.

The Dutchman enjoyed a stellar career in England, winning the FA Cup with Arsenal and a Premier League title at United.

The 35-year-old moved back to his native Holland with Feyenoord this summer after a three-year stint in Turkey with Fenerbahce.

‘When I have to stop? That is probably at the end of this season,’ he told AD.

‘I will be 36 years old and will have been a professional for 18 years. From the age of five, I’ve only been involved in football.’

Van Persie is Arsenal’s third-most prolific Premier League goalscorer, netting 97, and eighth on the club’s list of highest scorers ever.

He courted much controversy among Gunners, however, when he switched to long-time title rivals United in 2012.

He claimed the Premier League Golden Boot that season as Sir Alex Ferguson’s side romped to their 13th Premier League title.
