Man Utd ace Van Persie: Giggs and Scholes are still teaching me things

Robin van Persie admits he feels like a rookie at Manchester United.

Despite having the experience of nearly 400 matches and 71 international caps behind him, Van Persie says he is still learning new things from his new United teammates.

"I'm really enjoying myself. I'm seeing things again, like small things which people don't see from the outside, which really makes me happy," he said.

"For example, playing five against two in the box, and being with Scholsey [Paul Scholes] and with Giggs, and the choices they make in the box is just incredible.

"Scholesy has sort of a way when the ball goes up to head it. It's like he's going that way (right) when the ball is actually going that way (left), and every single one goes into this trick. Every single time."
