World 2018 43 Robin van Persie's career moments 31868794 RVP's resume RVP%27s+resume World

One of the best players in the Premier League, Robin Van Persie has certainly excited and infuriated in equal measure over his career. Who could forget his “once in a lifetime” shinned volley against Charlton back in 2006? He has scored countless wonderful goals over the years and doesn’t mind working hard to get results. Many questioned his decision to leave Arsenal for another Premier League club, how he proved the doubters wrong, lifting the Premier League in the process. We look back at some his best moments so far.

That summer, Van Persie joined Arsenal’s rivals Manchester United for £24 million, almost ten times what the Gunners once paid for him. The Dutchman cited the desire to win trophies as the main reason behind his move to Old Trafford, something that eluded him for much of his time at the Gunners. He did just that in his first season, as United retook the Premier League title in Alex Ferguson’s final season as manager. Van Persie’s 26 goals were instrumental in the Red Devils’ march to the title. Can he do it again this season?

Being captain seemed to have a positive effect on Van Persie’s performances as he racked up a phenomenal amount of goals. He was the 2011-12 Premier League top scorer with 30 goals, and had 37 in all competitions. That goal tally catapulted him into 8th place on the Gunners' all-time scoring list. RVP was also named the 2012 Player of the Year by the fans, players, and the Football Writers Association.

Having been appointed vice-captain the previous season – helped by Cesc Fabregas’ departure to Barcelona - Van Persie went on to captain the side in the 2011-12 campaign. This was an important milestone for him, after having been seen as a bad influence in the Feyenoord dressing room years earlier.

In 2005 Arsenal lifted the FA Cup; it was to be Van Persie’s only major trophy with Arsenal in his eight years at the club. He didn’t start the fixture, however he managed to score one of the all-important penalties in a shootout that decided the victors.

In May 2004, Arsenal signed Van Persie for a mere £2.75 million, just over half of Feyenoord’s original asking price. He made his Gunner debut against Manchester United in the Community Shield final and lifted his first trophy that very day.
