Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has said that he is proud to have worked with Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

The 29-year-old Netherlands international joined United from the Gunners in the summer on a four-year contract.

"I have had special coaches all in their own way," Van Persie told OnsOranje.

"[Bert] van Marwijk, Wenger, [Marco] van Basten, Ferguson. Piece by piece they are special.

"I think I have been [one of] the only players ever who has worked under Wenger and Ferguson. That's special."

Defender Mikael Silvestre is the other footballer to have played under both Wenger and Ferguson.
