    Why? I thought he behaved professionally in fairness to him, he didn't stick the boot in like ohers unless I'm missing something?

    The season under Fergie he was a different class, one of my favourite players of recent times.

    This is good news. I'm relocating to Rotterdam next month and plan to watch a few feynoord matches at the stadium. Would be a bonus to watch Van Persie.

    He almost gave his life for this club. Best of luck to him!

    My favourite United player of all time, surpassing Evra and Cantona.

    So he is back to home. Good move for him, with the Champions League coming up for Feyenoord.

    That doesn't mean he should be anywhere near a team like us

    My favourite player of all time is Ronaldinho but that doesn't mean I'd want us to sign him.

    I'd trust him to score in the last 10 minutes of a game more than any of our other strikers TBH.

    Heh? He didnt stand out, did he? Rio and Vidic didnt behave better. The only palyer who gave a feck was Fellaini.

    I watched most his games at Fener and I still believe he could play for United as an impact sub. Perfect mentor for Rashford and Martial too.

    That's sad. He's suffered with injuries his whole career, wonder if he might call it a day now.

    I imagine that's probably it for him now. Such a fantastic player, his contribution to winning us the league will never be forgotten.

    I think the peak, fit Van Persie of 2010 - 2013 was just about the perfect modern forward.

    He had tremendous late peaking of fitness and ability. At one point he was a goal scoring machine, was it at 29 years old or 28? He had his peak years, and i think now the injuries and the effects of those top performances are coming to haunt him back.

    I guess it's the right time to hang your boots RVP! (unless you're a Lion) Love the guy. A great example of late peaking player, from a quality player into a world class player in an instant, at the latter stage of a footballer's career.

    What an awful end to such a beautiful story. I still think the decision to go to turkey was the worst one made in his career. It's one of the absolute bottom choices for a pro like him. Turkey don't deserve CL spots and should be made to qualify at an earlier stage to prevent transfers like this. Can't say I feel sorry for him.

    Before he went to United he had been my favourite player in the league for a long time. Probably since around 06 when every goal he scored made my jaw drop. The goals for Arsenal against Charlton and Blackburn plus the free kick against Ivory coast at WC :drool: amazing player. Perfect forward, plenty of assists as well.

    Just watched all the goals he scored for us. His technique was amazing. An absolutely ruthless finisher.

    Also an effective left-footed penalty taker.

    shame about his injury.

    Was a fantastic player for us, so many great goals and his finishing was excellent. If you look back on some of his goals, some were incredible. His right foot was also underrated, could score with it easily.

    I bet the Fenerbahce fans are delighted with the news. They've been using every single Van Persie post on social media to abuse him in the past few months.

    He had another world class season in him, Moyes had to join at exactly the wrong time.

    I completely agree with that. Even under that moron of a man, he had some world class performances. The hatrick vs Olympiakos comes to mind.

    Class player and will always love him for Tha amazing season he had with us. However he really disappointed me in Moyes' first season here. It just seemed like he let the fact Fergie was gone bother him too much. Played proper crap football.

    Great news -- was kind of hoping he'd sneak onto their WC roster (if they make it). Their pipeline is poor enough that he still has a chance, in my opinion.
