(Image): Manchester United hail returning hero with social media post

For most Manchester United fans, and in all likelihood for their manager too, tonight’s game against Fenerbahce is an inconvenience more than anything. With his first game back at Chelsea coming up on Sunday, Jose Mourinho would probably rather be preparing his side for a vital league game.

Instead they face the Turkish giants in the Europa League. One person who will be looking forward to the match is Robin Van Persie, who had series of fantastic seasons at United, scoring goals and firing them to the title under Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Manchester United Instagram account sent out this image in recognition of the return of their former striker.

Robin returns to Old Trafford tonight with Fenerbahce. Welcome back, RVP! #MUFC
