Robin van Persie grew up in Rotterdam, where 15-time Dutch champions Feyenoord are something like a religion. Van Persie joined the club’s youth system as a 16-year-old after spending his formative years with Feyenoord satellite club Excelsior. He made his debut at 17 and spent three seasons with the first team before his transfer to Arsenal.
This Chicharito goal vs Brighton is one to remember. Sadly for West Ham, it was not nearly enough as they lost 3-1 against the Seagulls in English Premier League action on Saturday.
