Former Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie may have spent just three years at Old Trafford, but he was an important player and was pivotal as United clinched their 20th Premier League title under Sir Alex Ferguson's last season at the club. The ex-Arsenal striker was recently asked to provide a list of the six best players he played with in his successful career and he named four former Manchester United players.

Van Persie controversially left Arsenal back in 2012 in a £20 million deal as legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson saw a huge potential in the Dutch striker at the time. Van Persie repaid the faith paid in him by Sir Alex immediately as he would help the Red Devils seal their 20th English Premier League title by scoring a remarkable 30 goals in just his first campaign.

When asked to list the six best players he played with, he mentioned Wayne Rooney, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, and Ruud van Nistelrooy. The former striker also gave his opinion about former United manager Louis van Gaal who was responsible for the striker's exit from United in 2015 and insisted that he holds no grudge against his compatriot.

Van Persie said he now thinks he should have stayed behind at the club because he had one more year left on his contract. He said he could have as well stayed, but after having a conversation with Van Gaal who told him he was surplus to requirements, he had to leave Old Trafford in search of another club.

However,he said he enjoyed his time at Old Trafford and that he feels both proud and glad that he can tell his kids that he was once a Manchester United player and that he was part of the team that won the 20th Premier League title.
