Robin van Persie has officially been confirmed as the new head coach of Heerenveen.

It has been known for a while that Kees van Wonderen would step down as Heerenveen boss at the end of the season.

The Frisian club have been linked with Robin van Persie for a while now and the striker has now been appointed on a two-year-deal. It is the first step into management for the former Netherlands star, who was in charge of Feyenoordโ€™s U19 side.

Feyenoord wanted Van Persie to stay longer but he has opted for the chance to prove himself in the Eredivisie with Heerenveen.
