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.
