Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie praises Ryan Giggs in interview with Clare Balding [Teaser Videos]
The videos below show snippets from an interview with Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie on BT’s Clare Balding Show set to air tomorrow night at 8PM.
The clips show the Dutchman telling Clare about his admiration for interim manager Ryan Giggs after the host asks whether the Welshman has raised the bar for career longevity: “Today he was (training with us), and he’s still incredible. I’ve been here two years and he’s been unbelievable.”
As well as that we see the forward talking about his son Shaquille’s development as a young footballer and getting up to some antics in the kitchen with Clare and a tutoring chef.
Van Persie has spent much of the season on the sidelines and rumours have persisted throughout the campaign about him wanting to depart Old Trafford. But he has still managed to bag 18 goals this season and appeared to be committed to the club following the Hull game on Tuesday night, insisting “trust me, we will be back.”
