Robin van Persie lands first managerial job

Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker, Robin van Persie has been appointed the new head coach of Heerenveen.

This is the first managerial job for the 40-year-old.

Van Persie retired from football in 2019, following a spell with his boyhood club Feyenoord.

He has spent this season in charge of the Dutch side’s Under-18s, before taking the role at Heerenveen.

“I would like to continue my development and the role of head coach fits in perfectly with that goal.

“I am therefore pleased with the opportunity that Heerenveen offers me.

“Heerenveen is a very nice Eredivisie club with a rich tradition and loyal supporters,” Van Persie said.
