Van Bronckhorst would welcome Van Persie

Klopp ‘couldn’t care less’ about title talk as he prepares for the FA Cup

League winning Feyenoord coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst says Robin van Persie “would certainly fit” in at the club amid rumours of a possible return for the Dutch striker.

The 33-year-old former Feyenoord, Arsenal and Manchester United forward, who is currently on the books of Turkish giants Fenerbahce, is said to be keen on a final swansong with his former team.

The Rotterdam-born Van Persie scored 21 times in 76 games for the 2016/17 Eredivisie winners before being signed by Arsene Wenger in 2004.

Speaking to RTV Rijnmond, Van Bronckhorst said: "He would certainly fit at Feyenoord. With his past, what he has achieved and how he still performs.

“These are the days of rumors, but I do notice after the championship and the stage (Champions League) you can offer that a lot of players want to come to Feyenoord. The next weeks will give it shape."
