Former Man Utd stars Van Persie & Nani 'ready' to take Fenerbahce into Europa League group stages

Fenerbahçe striker Robin van Persie is expected to make his second start since joining from Manchester United against Atromitos in the Europa League play-off second leg game.

Van Persie shared a picture on his official Instagram account training alongside his former United teammate Luis Nani with the caption: “Good training tonight. We are ready for tomorrow! #LetsDoItTogether @luisnani @fenerbahce.”

Nani is also expected to start for the Yellow Canaries and provided his first assist for Van Persie in 598 days on the weekend against Rizespor.

Van Persie has now scored twice for the Istanbul giants in his last two games with his first two shots on target.

Fenerbahçe won the first leg against Atromitos 1-0 in Greece and will need just a draw to progress to the group stages.
