Robin van Persie Club Career
An incredible talent, van Persie was found by Feyenoord in the Excelsior academy, and the Dutch club snapped him up when he was just 16 years old.
In two years, van Persie made the step up to the senior team of Feyenoord where he spent three glorious years, although he did have an on-again-off-again dispute with the club’s manager at the time in Bert van Marwijk. However, van Persie’s talent was there for all to see, and it soon caught the eye of then-Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
Wenger signed van Persie for just under £3million in 2004, adding him to an Arsenal squad that had just won the Golden Premier League trophy. Wenger soon turned van Persie into a forward rather than a left-winger to succeed the clubs’ legendary striker, Thierry Henry. The Dutchman soon made his debut and did not look back.
In the 2006/07 season, van Persie showed signs of his brilliant talent as he scored a goal described by Wenger as ‘the goal of a lifetime’. He also won Rotterdam Sportsman of the Year that season due to his incredible performances.
In the 2008/09 season, the then 26-year-old managed 22 Premier League goal contributions – his highest for the club since his arrival. However, the best was yet to come. In the 2010/11 season, van Persie was the third-highest goal-scorer in the league and eventually won the Premier League Golden Boot in the following season as he smacked 30 goals – just 1 short of the Premier League record at the time.
In 2012, he made the move to rivals Manchester United for £24million and helped Sir Alex Ferguson lift the Premier League title in his last managerial season. van Persie also won the Premier League Golden Boot that year as he scored 26 goals. However, age caught up to the Dutchman and he departed the club after just three years and joined Turkish club, Fenerbahce, after 105 appearances and 58 goals for the Red Devils.
Van Persie only managed to score 36 goals in 87 appearances for the Super Lig side and soon returned to boyhood club Feyenoord, where he stayed another year before he retired in 2019. One of the greatest finishers in the game, Van Persie has now joined Feyenoord in a supporting role as a field coach, while also being the co-head coach at the club’s U16 team.
Robin van Persie International Career
Van Persie joined the Dutch national squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup and played in all four games for the national team. He also scored his only goal in the competition in the group stage.
However, van Persie’s moment at the international stage came in 2010, when he led his nation to the World Cup final as he featured in every game for the Oranje. Although they lost in the final, he got his revenge against Spain in the 2014 World Cup as they faced them in the group stage and defeated them 5-1, with van Persie opening the scoring with a brilliant header. He also scored a crucial penalty in the quarter-final against Costa Rica, but his country lost to Argentina in the semi-final.
After failing to qualify for the 2016 Euros, van Persie retired from international football in 2018. However, he left a legacy behind as he is the 7th-highest appearance maker for the Dutch National team. He is also the highest goal-scorer in the Netherlands’ national set-up with 50 goals to his name, a record which might not be broken for a long time to come.

Since retiring from the game, Robin van Persie tried his hand at punditry briefly. He is currently working as the assistant manager for the youth team at his boyhood club, Feyenoord. He also works with the senior team for the Dutch club in a technical coach capacity.
