Van Persie

Ajax sporting director Edwin van der Sar has revealed that Robin van Persie will receive a frosty reception when Fenerbahçe travel to Amsterdam on 5 November.

The former Manchester United keeper told Fanatik: “Our fans are not going to show him any love you can be sure of that.”

The Dutch giants took on Fenerbahçe at the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium in the Europa League on Match Day 3 yesterday.

Fenerbahçe will travel to the Netherlands for Match Day 4 next but while it will be a trip home for Van Persie he will not get a warm welcome from the Ajax fans.

Van Persie started his career at Feyenoord who happen to be the bitter rivals of Ajax Amsterdam.

The former Manchester United star joined Fenerbahçe on a three-year deal over the summer transfer window and already has five goals to his name this season.

The Istanbul giants are currently second in Group A on four points following their 1-0 win over Ajax.

Scottish giants Celtic were defeated Molde in the other Group A game played yesterday. The Swedish side are currently first on 7 points after three games.
