Robin Van Persie Reacts To Manchester United Fans Chanting His Name During The Match Against Barcelona

Robin van Persie admits he got goosebumps when fans chanted his name during Manchester United’s memorable Europa League win over Barcelona at Old Trafford..

Following a pulsating 180-minute battle between those two heavyweights over two legs, United advanced to the last-16 with a 4-3 aggregate victory. Fred and Antony scored in response to a penalty from Poland’s Robert Lewandowski in the second leg to send United through.

It sealed a thrilling result to match the atmosphere, and Van Persie found himself in the spotlight when he was serenaded from the stands. On Thursday night, the Dutchman was working for BT Sport alongside fellow ex-United players Owen Hargreaves and Paul Scholes..

Scholes was cut off by supporters while previewing the second leg as he detailed one key area for United in their pursuit of European progression. But it was all in good taste as the pundits paused to watch Van Persie soak up his well-deserved applause from the crowd.

His chant, set to the tune of the White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army, echoed around Old Trafford in celebration of Van Persie’s recent return to the club. During his playing days, a high-profile and contentious switch from Arsenal inspired United to their most recent Premier League title win in 2013.

Van Persie, 39, scored 26 goals in his debut season at Old Trafford and was named Premier League Player of the Year.

It’s no surprise that the former Netherlands forward is revered by fans, as he took to social media to respond to the chants..
