Man Utd striker Van Persie happy mentoring young players

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie says he enjoys working with young players.

RvP admits he is inspired by their enthusiasm.

He said: "Well, I've always really liked working with the younger lads in the squad. Especially if they really constantly want to learn, even from me, and then they can do really well in practice.

"Well, they do, and that adds to the fun. I can also learn from them again, they encourage me."
