Van Persie Close To Being Appointed Head Coach Of Eredivisie Club

Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is close to becoming the new head coach of Eredivisie side Heerenveen.

If Van Persie is eventually appointed, it would be his first full managerial role at the senior level.

The former Netherlands international has recent experience being youth coach at Feyenoord.

Heerenveen are currently in 10th place in the Dutch topflight.

In May 2020, a year after his retirement, Van Persie became an assistant-coach to Dick Advocaat at his former club Feyenoord, where he would help train the club’s strikers in an unofficial role.

Feyenoord announced in May 2021 that Van Persie would officially join the club from the start of the 2021–22 season in a supporting role as a field coach, while also becoming the co-head coach at the club’s under-16 team.

For the 2023–24 season, Van Persie was promoted to co-head coach of the club’s under-18 team, as well as the under-19 team in the 2023–24 UEFA Youth League.

During his playing career, the 40-year-old won the FA Cup with Arsenal in 2005.

He left the Gunners in 2012 and joined Manchester United, helping land the 2012/13 Premier League title.
