Man Utd fans convinced Robin van Persie could still start for them following classy goal in Kompany testimonial – The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED fans could not hide their excitement about seeing Robin van Persie get on the score-sheet during Vincent Kompany's testimonial.

Van Persie, 36, spent three seasons at Old Trafford and scored 58 times in 105 appearances in all competitions.

He was also part of the last United team to win the league.
