Manchester United fans on Twitter have been busy reminiscing about Robin van Persie, after a video emerged showing all of the forward’s goal from his time at Old Trafford.
The Dutchman has now retired from the game, after announcing his decision back in October, and it has certainly got the United fans in a romantic mood as they discuss their former No.20 and everything that he did for the club.
Will OGS still be in charge of Man Utd come next May? The Flying Pig discusses in the video below…
Van Persie led United to their 20th top-flight success in his first season at Old Trafford, and scored 58 goals in 105 appearances for the Red Devils overall to cement himself in the supporters’ good books.
He was due to play his last game in professional football with Feyenoord against Fortuna Sittard on Wednesday, but that plan has now changed with the 2-0 defeat to ADO Den Haag on Sunday his last.
His retirement has left the United fanbase romanticising over his efforts for the club.
Let’s take a look at what the supporters have been saying about their former Dutch hitman…
Robin van Persie is set to retire from football today. Sit back, relax and watch all of his league goals from his debut season at Manchester United. Thank you for 20, @Persie_Official. They don’t make them like him anymore. Enjoy retirement! ??? #mufc pic.twitter.com/GTG15TAjBh

Forever remembered as a red. He carried the team and we made his dreams of a league title come true. Much love, Robin…

He hasn’t been at United long, yet the impact he made will make me remember him forever. Thanks for the 20th title and so many great memories @Persie_Official!

Flying Dutchman ? Enjoy your retirement, RvP ? One of the best UTD striker that we ever have

How good was he?? Turning half chances into goals. Our strikers can’t even finish his easy ones.
Constantly making runs as well in the box. So, so good.

Honestly think if this man was around for longer, we would be talking about him as united’s best ever 9. Hold up play best I’ve seen at OT!!

He was a terrific striker. That’s what United are missing now.
