Manchester United striker Robin van Persie admits he's a huge fan of Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo.

Van Persie says he loves watching Pirlo in action.

He said: "He is so good, even in the choices he makes, I can really enjoy him. Pirlo has had a long high-level football career, was at AC Milan, but is now back at Juventus.

"He seems to be having his second youth."
