Former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie showed why he was one of the best strikers to play in the Premier League during tonight’s testimonial match for Vincent Kompany.
Manchester City Legends host Premier League All-Stars at the Etihad and the latter have just taken a 2-1 lead, thanks to the Dutch centre-forward.
