Robin van Persie joins Feyenoord coaching staff

Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has taken his first step into coaching.

Van Persie has returned to former club Feyenoord to join manager Dick Advocaat's staff.

The former Holland international has been named the club's 'attacking coach' and will work with the strikers day-to-day.

Advocaat confirmed the appointment on Thursday after their 7-1 Dutch Cup win over Breda.

The Feyenoord coach is especially keen for Van Persie to work closely with 20 year-old striker Róbert Bozeník.
