Former Arsenal and Manchester United forward Robin Van Persie has said that Erik ten Hag could be regarded as one of the top coaches in the world. The Dutchman recently invited Robin Van Persie back to Carrington. The former striker has been trying to complete his coaching badges and linking up with Erik ten Hag is seen as a valuable addition to his preparation days. After the visit, Van Persie was in full acclaim of his countryman, who has been able to steady the ship at Manchester United after a disappointing set of results.
United are just six points behind Manchester City as the Premier League is all set to resume in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, Van Persie has completed his trip to United. “Thanks for the warm welcome [Manchester United] and Erik ten Hag. Great time back at Carrington for a trip down memory lane and to learn the ropes from one of the best coaches in modern football,” said Van Persie on his social media post.
