All Robin van Persie needed to make the best catch of the day was a fishing rod, not a net, while on a trip out to the sea.
The Manchester United striker enjoyed a spot of deep sea fishing on Thursday and amazed himself with a catch more than he could handle.
The Netherlands international had a hard time keeping hold of his fishing rod having managed to trap a shark.
The 31-year-old uploaded the clip on his Facebook page with the following caption: Ohhhhhhh ohhhhhh my god wooow unbelievable!

He also uploaded another photo of his earlier catch, adding that he let the a shark go; so as to avoid animal activists’ troubles.
Van Persie has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford. He struggled with injuries for much of the 2014-15 season and started only 25 league matches.
