Robin van Persie has returned to Feyenoord as a coach. The Netherlands all-time leading goalscorer will work with the club’s attackers.

The 37-year-old will step onto the training field for the first time on Friday and will be working with Feyenoord’s strikers.

Van Persie said on the club’s website, “It is not an official function. That’s why I find it difficult to give it a name. For example, I don’t see myself as a striker coach. I think it’s a win-win situation: I’m going to find out here if I like this and I help the staff here. “

Dick Advocaat played a big role in the decision, “Dick called me and asked if I wanted to come. And I can’t say no to Dick. The past year I have only done things that I like. I work as an analyst in England, I travel a lot with my family, do a lot of sports. Now I’m going to see if this is something I also enjoy. “
