Speaking to Voetbal International, Van Persie said on being dropped, “That’s totally new for me. Normally I have always played when I was fit, after my early years at Feyenoord.”

“At a certain moment I felt that I was not going to play.”

“When I asked if I could join the reserves. “Of course, for you is always place,” said the coach of the reserves. First I played at home against Leicester City and then against Fulham, when I was on the bus for five or six hours to London!”

He continued, “I have to consider the situation. So does the club. They do their homework, me too. I have to think about what I want exactly. That is a new situation for me, “

“I’m 32 in August, but i want to keep playing for a few years.”

On his poor form during the season, Van Persie said, “I’ve played 27 league matches and scored ten times. That may be six or seven goals short. But I think it’s a compliment that people don’t accept it.”
