Over the years, Robin van Persie has played with – and against – some of the game’s best players.
A career which saw him represent Feyenoord, Arsenal, Manchester United and Fenerbahce, the 35-year-old had plenty to mull over when he was quizzed by the BBC on his best boss, best team-mate and best opponent.
Arriving in England from Holland for less than £3million, Van Persie went on to establish himself as one of the best strikers in his generation.
A clinical finisher, rarely ever flustered, but as the quickfire questions were put to him, the Dutchman was left scrabbling for his answers.
But while he could not choose a player to join him in attack for an all-time career XI, Van Persie had no doubts in his mind when he was selecting his most impressive opponent – or more accurately, opponents.
