Video: Watch former Man Utd striker Van Persie's special goal for Fenerbahce

Turkey League

Fenerbahce striker Robin van Persie scored one of the goals of the week during his sides win over Giresunspor in the Turkish Cup.

The 32-year-old dribbled the ball around the defender and goal-keeper before sliding the ball into an empty net.

Van Persie has nine goals and an assist since joining the Yellow Canaries on a three-year move from United over the summer – more than the Red Devils current strikers.

Former Manchester United star and football pundit Rio Ferdinand revealed that he believes his former side made a big mistake selling Van Persie over the summer.

“The likes of Robin van Persie guarantee you 15 goals a season,” Ferdinand said speaking on BT Sport 1 after the goalless draw between Manchester United and Chelsea.

Fenerbahce ended up winning the game 6-1 over Giresunspor and Van Persie ended the game with a brace.

The Yellow Canaries take on Eskisehirspor in their next Turkish Super Lig game.
