Robin van Persie may only have played the final 26 minutes of Manchester United’s 2-1 FA Cup win over Reading, but there were a couple of moments where the Dutchman pulled out some real class.
Introduced by Sir Alex Ferguson in the 64th minute, with Manchester United drawing 0-0, RVP’s arrival brought about two quick-fire goals for Nani and Javier Hernandez.
The stand out van Persie moment was the terrific juggle and back heel flick for Danny Welbeck to run onto down the line but there was also a superb raking pass for Nani moments later from Manchester United’s player of the season so far.
Both RVP moments during Manchester United’s win over Reading are on the GIFs below.
