Robin van Persie says it is a 'privilege' to have worked for both Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.

Robin van Persie has said that he feels privileged to have played under both Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger.

The Dutchman was managed by Wenger at Arsenal for eight years before signing for Manchester United in the summer.

"It is an absolute privilege to say that in my career I have had both these managers at the clubs I have played for," said Van Persie.

"They are both icons as managers in football. They are both world class, one not more nor less than the other. I purely look at this comparison as a footballer. I look at the way they both work on the pitch, in training, at the club and off the field.

"I had a fantastic time with Arsene. I enjoyed training, playing, talking and all the other times I spent with him. I love it that I now experience the same with Sir Alex."

Arsenal and Manchester United meet on November 3.
