Former Manchester United player and current Feyenoord assistant coach Robin van Persie has recorded a message for our new signing, Tyrell Malacia.

Like Van Persie, Malacia also played for Feyenoord’s youth team and began his career with the Dutch club, before making the move to Old Trafford. They both represented Feyenoord in Van Persie’s final season too.

I would like to congratulate you on your fantastic move to Manchester United, in this big moment of your career. You’ve shown that with self-belief, lots of talent and hard work day in and day out, and I’ve seen that from close by, that dreams come true.

To all Red Devils fans, you are not only getting a very talented full-back, but also a fantastic person. Be nice to him, support him in good times and bad, and he will give absolutely everything for you guys. I’m sure it’ll be an excellent connection together.

On behalf of all Feyenoord fans, thanks Tyrell for what you’ve done for all these years, from a young kid when you arrived in the youth academy, up until now, in this fantastic moment. You are an example for the next generation. Thank you for all your effort and all you have done for our club and I wish you all the very best.
