Van Persie names five favourites Man Utd teammates

Former Manchester United striker, Robin van Persie, has named his top five Red Devils teammates from during his time at the club.

Van Persie joined Man United from Arsenal for £24million.

The Dutch star went on to almost single-handedly secure Legendary Man United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson’s 13th and final Premier League title.

He netted 26 goals in 38 appearances in his first season at Old Trafford, and seven years later he has now picked out the five players he enjoyed playing with the most when he was a Man United player.

“It is hard to answer because most of them were impressive in their own style,” Van Persie told So Foot.

“[Nemanja] Vidic was a warrior. He put his head where normally it is scary to do so. He did anything to win.

“[Rio] Ferdinand, he was more ‘elegant’, comfortable with the ball, strong in aerial play, good in long play.

“[Ryan] Giggs was the flamboyant player, always giving the impression of being in his comfort zone. Still in great shape at 39. He did yoga and lived football all the time.

“Rooney was impressive in his own style too. The guy was always full on.

“Also, Patrice Evra, who always spoke loudly to instil confidence in the team. Today, I know he makes ‘funny’ videos, but please do not believe that is all he’s, as he’s also a super professional and a super-intelligent guy.

“He speaks five languages – even Korean. His mind is as strong as his body.”
