(Video) Van Persie scores against Man City Legends in Vincent Kompany Testimonial

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.

While everyone is watching to see what former players are keeping in shape, there’s a hint of irony about this testimonial match, with Vincent Kompany unable to play on the night due to injury.
