It was a very emotional moment for world football when “the flying Dutchman” Robin Van Persie quit the beautiful game, May 12th, 2019, after an 18 year stint. Going off the field through a guard of honor formed by players and refs, he acknowledged that he would miss the game but was looking forward to the rest life has to offer.
