A former Arsenal and Man United player Robin Van Persie has returned to coaching as he is now part of the crew at Feyenoord.

Robin Van Persie is known to be loved at the Emirates Stadium and the Old Trafford for his impact when he was at the clubs. He is expected to now impact his knowledge on the younger players after his retirement at 37.

It would be recalled that he retired as a Feyenoord player last summer after winning 102 Holland caps and an earlier 11 years in the English Premier League.

However, he claimed to have been called by Feyenoord manager Advocaat Dick and he could not say no to former Rangers, Sunderland, and Dutch national team coach.

Robin Van Persie told the Feyenoord website that his role at the club is not an official one and could just be a striker coach to help the strikers in the club.

Although he is unsure if he would love to do the job of a coach from this very experience, he would definitely figure it out or quit before the start of the nest season campaign.

Robin Van Persie has been more prominent with pundit jobs since his retirement and seems to love it by the day.
