[PHOTOS] Robin Van Persie’s first training session with Manchester United

Share

You’ll be seeing a lot of Robin van Persie in an Arsenal Manchester United shirt this season, so might as well get used to it now.

Here’s RVP (£24m, high wages, 4 year contract, injury record and all that) taking part in his first training session for Manchester United as the club prepares for their first league match (Everton on Monday). He’s one of the most expensive transfer signings ever made by Manchester United and one of the highest-profile deals done in this Premier League transfer window.

It’s amazing how photos can shape the narrative – here’s RVP getting along nicely with Fergie, Rio, Rooney and not to mention Paul Scholes. If he fits in well with this bunch of players, it will be magic.

The best part of the photos? When RVP meets Nani. Also, poor Darren Fletcher – he looks like he’s lost so much weight in his illness. Props to him for continuing to train and fight to be playing football again.

Here it is, RVP at Man Utd (heaven for DHL, AON, Chevrolet, Nike, etc):

  1. Van Persie go to hell we do not need u, from now on we see u as one of the devils.

    • Daniel fekadu grow up when van Persie played for u you loved him now he’s gone u hate him

    • Typical arsenal fans..if u didnt hav him last season u wud hav been relegated..

    • Daniel, don’t be naïve. We paid u a huge some amount of money dat was irresistible and u accepted. Pls be a gentle and business minded man. Enjoy your money while we enjoy our now priceless asset. Holler! He’s no longer Gunner’s (yours) but of OURS(RED ARMY).

    • haa stfu you go to hell UTD ALL WAY

    • I hated when he played for Arsenal but now I m beginning to like him (RVP).

    • what.. hey you devil. rpv do not nedd MU

  2. man we are now a complete team .

    • not yet, we need a BIG midfielder to put city to their 1 title every 60 years

    • Dude v still need a world class midfielder..and then v wud b unstoppable

      • yeh i agree need another cm & rb..but not this season might not need to be.. wait still scholes giggs retires then spend again anderson carrick kagawa flecter all gd csms and cleverly..we should cash in on 5 to 7million berba get him off the wage packet and make room for RVP & nani wages for popular players

    • We are not yet complete guy,we still need solid defensive midfielder in the mould of Javi martinez.

  3. god this hurts, but I wish you well Robin and thank you for the 8 years you gave us

  11. yeah, it hurts to see rvp in a united shirt. Wish u well and hope u will succeed n be happy there. Just whats up at my beloved arsenal? Am disappointed that they cant keep such cool stars…

  12. Arsenal funs must be friends with man utd funs anymore! We have to help each other. It has to be a good corporation, because our football enemies now is Man city, Chelsea etc. Respect to our teams, respect to the great coaches Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.

  13. No difference btw him n d rest..people who don’t know d meaning of loyalty..my money is on it he won’t best anyone who leads Gunners attack..In Wenger we still trust…by d way,wat do u expect from footballers wen der agents run der lives like kids?..Song is more important than RVP or Walcot..

  14. RVP’s talent is on a downward movement.

  15. welcome home rvp

  16. Wake up fellas,football as gone beyond you criticizing RVP.
    He made it clear to us that the board is not concern about the team winning Trophies,must they sell their best and serious players every season. They have made it clear to us that it’s all about Money,last season they sold,this season same next season they will. Wake up fans.
    Gunners till I fade off.

  17. Rvp u made a gret decision n u just have 2 show it

  18. D new forward of d red devills. Van z man berariw super man….

  19. Yeah! All gunner fans i wish 2 condole wt u guys on van p’s departure. This’s football nd dts hw it use to b. Remembering wen C Ronaldo left us, Teves left us nd d rest of otherz. Its really painful. As for van P wearing Red Devil’s shirt, I just wish him d best of luck. Up Utd!

  20. I HAVE NO DOUBT IN MY MIND;RVP WOULD SUCCEED IN MANCHESTER UNITED.

  21. Finally,united got him,You are welcom to succesful team.

  22. RVP U AR WELCOME

  23. I know that r v p has a great future ahead of him and man united will definately help him to showcase his potential.Great united! Great SAF.

  24. stop sulking fellaz, d guy gave arsenal hiz best and now needs to win trophiez cos he’s not geting an younger. United we stand.

  25. it is very sensetional transfer for the red devils .he is aperfect player &the man utd squad will be very strongthen

  26. RVP WILL DO WELL WITH MANUTD

  27. All Arsenal fans u can go to hell. VP need trophies, but arsenal cannot able to give him.

  28. with or without RVP arsenal remains great,every team have it own season. cesc’s gone, nasri’s gone, blender’s gone but yet arsenal remains and we’re glady.ARSENAL IS GREAT(AIG)

  29. Niceone from man utd, I wish RVP a successful time at man utd becoz his an injury prone player…UP MANCHESTER UNOTED 4LIFE

  30. Niceone from man utd, I wish RVP a successful time at man utd becoz his an injury pron player…UP MANCHESTER UNOTED 4LIFE

  31. Am hapy too see van in man u. wish im al da best in his career (at) utd.

  32. U ar wal come to rad, i hope this season u wel up/get the cup.

  33. A conducive place to be. A perfect match place to be. A desiring and ambitious place to be and a future fulfilled place to be for winning trophies. RVP, welcome aboard. Enjoy your stay @ United with great success. Van Der Sar did same and never regrets rather, finds a home @ Oldtraford than ever thought.

  34. tanx RVP, we need a left back and a winger cos ashley young and nani are inconsistent. United we stand.

  35. Great to see Darren Fletcher training there. Could make a massive difference to that team if he gets back to fitness.

  36. Soldier go soldier come,barrack remain gidigba. Cantona,henry,gerard,Zola etc are legends.no matter hw much trophies a player wins can nt & neva supercede having ur statue erected at a stadium. Everybody is a master of his/her opinion. Am a gunner 4 laif

  37. I most say RVP make a right decision for choosing manutd, when he was playing for arsenal we hate him because he is a machine I always wanted him to play for manutd now that he is in manutd most arsenal players will hate him.so, well come to manutd RVP. Its a great honour for man utd.

  38. Yakubu Nehemiah I quite agree with u, dont forget that, one can not appreaciate what he has at his disposal until he lose it . Initially they don’t recognize his present until last year when he became a high goal scorer now he is no longer arsenal player that is why they are making all this noise up utd, up red devils, long live RVP.

  39. We need one more player at least right back to help patric evera b enfore Monday’s match against everton. nd if we really need to win epl,champion, fa cup,carling cup, we should try nd signe right back.

  40. Am great 2 see RVP taking his first part in training with manutd,i know he is gonne be the best singhing ever.

  41. Robin Van Persie told that he came to manchester united for acived big things like Premier League and I Praised him for leaving hell club to A1 club.

  42. R v p u ar welcome 2 d home of d red devils

  43. why do we need a midfielder when we have man u

  44. Am vry flabagasted that SAF hv d same reasoningwit me, all we need right now is another left back defender to suport Evra P. like Baines nd united will ever remain the best…..? Wlcm to the winning team RVP……………. Up UTD.

  45. UTD for life. I sympathies wit Arsenal nd must encourage them to continue making there useless money that cannot fetch them a good player.
    Welcome and feel @ home RVP. U have been given jeasy no 20, that is bcos its time for our 20th trophy. Up SAF, UP MAN.UNITED, UP MAN U. FANS……………!

  46. daniel why ar u kil ur salf abt van pasie why nah we paid u nt free abi pls stop cosin him unles i we kidnap u ok

  47. arsenal we r very thankful 4 ur transfer but we now need rvp he is very welcome
    UNITED WE STAND

  48. Asenal iz jst a football academy.nt football club.so am nt suprise.

  49. RPV .. is the best
