Robin van Persie won’t say no to another Netherlands call-up

Former Arsenal and Manchester United star Robin van Persie has indicated that he would not refuse another call-up by the Netherlands, though the prospect of that happening appears bleak. The 35-year-old has made a strong start to the season with four goals from just five matches for Feyenoord but this has created the buzz of him making a probable Dutch comeback.

Speaking to reporters, Van Persie admitted that he would not turn down the prospect of making a national team comeback but the opportunity remains unlikely with Ronald Koeman recently citing the veteran may never be selected, he said: “I have said before: I will never say thank you (refuse a call-up), but the coach has been pretty clear in the media. It is going to be a very difficult story, in which he is clear. I do not assume that I’m being called, because he has clearly indicated it. I’m open to it, if he calls me, we’ll have to watch how he sees it. See if it suits me at that moment, based on which we have to make a choice.”

“Van Persie has sustained various injuries over the course of his career “
and this has reduced his impact on the playing field to some regard. Despite this,
“he managed to make “
a wide fan base for himself after spending more than a decade in the Premier League and his time at Manchester United is often spoken about after leading them to their last league title during the 2012/13 season.

With the national team, Van Persie has unfortunately not won any silverware with the runner-up finish at the 2010 World Cup being the best performance. He has still made history by becoming their highest scorer of all time with 50 goals from 102 appearances – the last of which came during the World Cup qualifier against France last year.
