Robin van Persie proves he still loves Manchester United during Vincent Kompany’s testimonial

Manchester United fans could be forgiven for taking a romantic trip down memory lane on Wednesday with the likes of Robin van Persie, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Michael Carrick appearing in Vincent Kompany’s testimonial at the Etihad.
The Belgian was unable to play due to a hamstring injury but an exciting all-star XI held its own against Kompany’s City select, drawing 2-2 during an entertaining game in the north-west.
Scholes, 44, grabbed the headlines with a quite fantastic pass midway through the second half, while Gary Neville’s defending for Martin Petrov’s opener within a minute of the start could do with some forensic analysis on MNF. But it was van Persie, who retired at the end of last season with Feyenoord, that looked in best shape and he scored a stunning goal to put the all-star XI in front.

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side looking particularly weak up front this season, there were inevitable calls from United supporters to sign up the flying Dutchman on a short-term contract.
And eagle-eyed supporters spotted that the former Arsenal man still holds a special place for United in his heart as his shinpads were emblazoned with the Red Devils’ crest.
