Robin Van Persie announces retirement date

Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker, Robin van Persie has announced the date of his retirement from playing football.

Van Persie, who is currently with Feyenoord in the Eredivisie league, has decided to hang his boots at the end of the 2018-19 season.

He won the 2012-13 Premier League Golden Boot during his three-year spell at Old Trafford, scoring 132 goals in 278 appearances before leaving the Red Devils to join Turkish side, Fenerbahce in 2015.

Asked when he plans to retire from playing football, the 35-year-old told Dutch publication, AD, “When I have to stop? That is probably at the end of this season.

“That was also the approach.

“I will be 36 years old, and will have been a professional for 18 years. From the age of five, I’ve only been involved in football.”

Van Persie added: “I also do not believe that my return to Feyenoord has only been successful if we win the title.

“How is it successful? This is actually it, if you look at the whole picture. I had lost the fun. That’s not how I wanted to end, without pleasure. The fun has returned at Feyenoord.”
