Robin van Persie was Sunday more than satisfied after his first rise to Feyenoord, but the old hand is aware that the game of the People against Heracles Almelo (1-0 win) could be better.
“It feels good, I am glad that I was allowed to start and have a lot of meters can make. Here and there you can have it all, what’s better, there we go to work,” said Van Persie after the end in The Bowl at FOX Sports.
The 34-year-old attacker made after 59 minutes, the only hit of the contest, after Heracles attacker Kristoffer Peterson shortly before the bottom of the bar had hit. And that was not the only chance for the away team. “If one was flown, it had become awkward,” said van Persie. “Fortunately, I was able to with a little luck the 1-0 advantage and that proved to be enough.”
The goal of the 102-fold international was a placed shot from a meter or twenty. “I wanted the ball in the far corner shooting, and he was on the go even slightly touched. That was nice.”
