Robin van Persie is back where it all began.
The 34-year-old is seeing out his playing days at Feyenoord, where he’s already scoring trademark left-footed beauties.
His transition into a veteran took another important step today when he lined up in the centre of midfield.
If ever a striker was born to eventually play in midfield it’s RVP.
The left foot. The technique. The Dutchman is a helmet and pads away from being an NFL quarterback.
He took his place in midfield alongside former Aston Villa schemer Karim El Ahmdai and Dutch international Tonny Vilhena.
Feyenoord’s attacking trio have been in good form this season.
Only PSV Eindhoven’s Hirving Lozano has more goals than Feyenoord forward Steven Berghuis, who’s scored 12 times in the league and added a further eight assists.
Central striker Nicolai Jorgensen has only scored seven times but the Dane’s aerial power makes him a valuable asset.
So for now RVP will have to make do with a place in midfield.
An you won’t find us complaining about it.
There’s no better site than a golden oldie running the game from the middle of the park.
Get the deckchair out.
