Man Utd striker RvP: I almost chose PSV over Arsenal

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie admits he could've signed for PSV Eindhoven earlier in this career.

Van Persie says when he left Feyenoord for Arsenal, he had the chance to join PSV.

"When I was 20, I could've gone to PSV. That was special as Guus Hiddink was there.

"It fell through in the end and I left for Arsenal," recalled RvP, who will retain the Holland captaincy under new coach Hiddink.

"It was good news. I find it a challenge and a great honour."
