Robin van Persie will stay at Manchester United until his contract expires, says his father
Dutch striker Robin van Persie’s father has claimed that the striker will stay at Manchester United until his current contract expires in 2016, and believes he might go back to his former club Excelsior, where he started off his career. Excelsior, a Dutch base club in the district of Rotterdam where van Persie spent two years there before making a switch to Feyenoord’s youth team when he was 13 years old.
During an interview to the Blizzard Magazine, Bob van Persie said, “When his contract end in Manchester he’ll be 33,”
“As long as he’s fit enough – and I’m sure he will be – he’ll stay in Manchester. Then he’ll go back to Excelsior. Money will never be an issue.
Robin is hyperactive. He was like that as a kid and always will be like that. He needs football to burn his energy and he’ll be like that for the rest of his life.
So he’s got to look forwards. I think he’ll probably always be loyal to Excelsior, Arsenal and Manchester United. Those clubs are like home. I think Robin will finish his career in Excelsior and then go back to London or Manchester as a coach. That will be his next goal in life: to be the best coach in the world. I hope we have to wait years for that moment. Let’s enjoy watching him play a little more.”
Robin van Persie was bought from Arsenal back in 2012 and had an amazing debut season which helped Manchester United clinch their 20th league title.
He has scored 38 goals in 59 appearances he made for Manchester United and is aiming to win the FIFA World Cup for the Netherlands with incoming club manager Louis van Gaal at the helm.
