The former Arsenal and Manchester United forward returned to Feyenoord in the January transfer window, 14 years after he left to join the Gunners.

The two-time Premier League Golden Boot winner scored his 300th career goal in Feyenoord's 3-0 defeat of Willem II in the KNVB Beker on Thursday (AEDT).

Van Persie hit 132 goals in 278 games for Arsenal before a move to rivals United helped the Netherlands international win the 2012-2013 Premier League.

Van Persie, who scored 50 international goals, has scored once every 67 minutes for Feyenoord since re-joining the club.

The 34-year-old's record is the best average for any Eredivisie player who has hit at least three goals this season.
