Dad convinced Van Persie will stick with Man Utd

The father of Robin van Persie expects him to stay with Manchester United.

Indeed, Van Persie's father is convinced his son will extend his Old Trafford stay once his contract runs out in 2016.

"As long as he is fit enough, and I am sure he will be, he'll stay in Manchester," his father told football publication The Blizzard.

"Then he'll go back to [his first club] Excelsior. Money will never be an issue."
