Robin van Persie says joining Manchester United last summer was like moving to a new school.

The former Arsenal captain admits he was nervous on his first day.

"When you go to high school and you are about twelve years old, you wake up early and are nervous about seeing your new class-mates. It was very similar to be fair, although I knew most of them. But it was like that. I came in, gave everyone a handshake and we had some jokes and some smiles, so it felt good from day one," he told MUTV.
