Ex Man Utd stars train together with Fenerbahce team for first time

Fenerbahçe star striker Robin van Persie trained together with his new side for the first time since joining from Manchester United.

Van Persie and Nani took part in their first team training session together at their new club.

The new Fenerbahçe signings are no strangers to each other having trained and played in the same team for a few seasons at United.


Nani won four Premier League titles, the Champions League and the World Club Cup whilst at United last season.

Van Persie was part of the United side that won the record 20th league title while donning the number 20 shirt.

Both former United stars have been included in the 24 man squad for Fenerbahçe ahead of the Champions League preliminary play-off clash against Shakhtar Donetsk at the end of the month.
