Van Persie called time on his professional career in May, aged 35, and he's processing life without playing football.

"A very good friend of mine said once you retire you end up in a small crisis. You can deny it or not, but it is a very weird feeling to stop," he added.

"Because this is something I've been doing my whole life and I don't know better. From the age of five, I've been doing keepie-ups and passing against the wall. It ended up in a fantastic road trip!

"That is my comfort zone - I feel happiest on the football pitch, it's where I'm myself, where I can explore and be creative - but life's not over.

"There will come new challenges, new adventures, disappointments, fantastic moments. It's a nice thing to explore that as well - new life, whatever that will be."

You can catch Van Persie on your screens as a BT Sport pundit.
