The Dutch striker is shocked by the behaviour of some Premier League aces.
Van Persie, 27, told The Sun: "When I see some English footballers who are out until three in the morning, then I can only conclude that they are invariably finished at 33.
"For me it's very important to be having breakfast every morning with my two children.
"And that wouldn't be possible if you were hanging about in a discotheque all night.
"I have made another choice and that's to be doing what I love the most, playing football."
