Feyenoord veteran Van Persie announces retirement plans

Former Manchester United and Arsenal star Robin van Persie has announced he intends to retire at the end of the season.

Van Persie returned to boyhood club Feyenoord after a spell with Fenerbache in Turkey, and he hopes to win the league title in his final season.

He told AD: "When I have to stop? That is probably at the end of this season.

"That was also the approach.

"I will be 36 years old, and will have been a professional for 18 years. From the age of five, I've only been involved in football."
