Man Utd ace Van Persie lifts Vitesse with locker room visit

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie spent time with Vitesse Arnhem this week.

Van Persie took in their 1-1 draw with Ajax and visited the Vitesse locker room afterwards.

Vitesse keeper Piet Velthuizen revealed: "He stood in the hallway and I said 'come here'.

"I know him from the Oranje and have always kept in touch with him. He popped in and it was fun."

Ajax keeper Jasper Cillessen was also happy to see Van Persie at the game.

"He has a knee injury and is recovering in Zeist. And this was a fun game for him to watch."
