Old Trafford stood up to welcome back it’s hero, Robin Van Persie.
Van Persie returned with Fenerbahce to face his former club Man United, and was greeted with an unreal reception by former fans.
RVP is held in high regards by the United faithfuls for his amazing service to the club during his three year stay in Manchester.
Van Persie is also attributed to have helped Sir Alex Ferguson retire as the Premier League champion, as RVP single-handedly won the league for the Red Devils during Sir Alex’s last season.
But, it’s not just Old Trafford that stood to show appreciation to one of the modern greats but Twitter also united to salute the legend Robin Van Persie.
