Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has hinted that he could end his footballing career at Old Trafford.
His 19 goals in 26 league appearances have helped United build up a 15-point advantage at the top of the division, and move within touching distance of reclaiming the title of England’s top club side.
Van Persie is thrilled with life at United, and confessed that he could end his playing days with them:
“For the next few years I will be at Manchester United – and maybe longer. United could be my last club.” He told quoted by Sky Sports via Voetbal International.
“You have a number of clubs in Europe where older players can find it good, where they are valued. You used to have that at Juventus and AC Milan, Manchester United today is a good example. So who knows how long I will stay at the club.”
At 29, van Persie’s peek years are, arguably, behind him, but the former Arsenal man insists that he still has a real hunger for the game and the set-up at United is helping him continue to develop:
“There is a new challenge for me every day at United. My development is an ongoing process. That gets an extra boost when you are surrounded by new coaches and team-mates, all with their own ideas, in a totally new environment.”
Van Persie struggled with injuries earlier in his career, but has managed to, on the whole, remain fully fit for the last two seasons, demonstrating his true ability.
