It was great to see Ruud van Nistelrooy back in training this month but unfortunately, it wasn’t to make a return to his playing Manchester United days.
Instead, it was part of a marketing campaign by Xbox One for FIFA 14 as RVN is one of 42 legends who can be bought in the game.
In the advert, ‘Food’ van Nistelrooy was too busy eating to play football and had to work his way back into shape. No pain no gain.
Although he won’t be coming back as a member of the squad, Van Nistelrooy has been talking about Manchester United this month regarding the potential signings of Radamel Falcao and Edison Cavani – two signings he feels would dramatically improve United.
There may have been plenty of talented strikers who have come through the ranks at Old Trafford but few can compare to Van Nistelrooy’s record of 150 goals in 219 appearances.
