Van Persie warns Man Utd of 'Cup fighters' Sevilla

Former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie believes Sevilla can upset his old team.

United meet Sevilla in the Europa League quarterfinal tomorrow night.

“[Sevilla are] one of the favourites, [but] first they have to find a way around Manchester United," Van Persie, who won the 2012-13 Premier League at Old Trafford, told Stats Perform News.

“They are Cup fighters, they live to play these type of games.

“I almost talked to them before my time at Arsenal, they were one of the three options I could go to. It was tempting to go there, but then I chose Arsenal."
