Why Ex-Man United Striker Robin van Persie Visited Carrington During Ten Hag Press Revealed

Robin van Persie made a surprise appearance at Carrington this Wednesday and was part of Erik ten Hag’s pre-match press conference.

“It’s become more positive, the ambience in the place. The cafeteria has even changed. It’s like everything has changed. Looks different, feels different, food’s different.

“I was on my own, walking back out through the training ground, through the corridors, and I stood there and just smiled. I can sense something happening in here now.

“I don’t what it is or where it’s going to but the ambience is very different. There’s a confidence in the place.”

Meanwhile, the Manchester Evening News cited sources within the club who confirmed that Van Persie was not there to potentially join Ten Hag’s coaching staff. Wouldn’t that be amazing though?
