Manchester United’s Robin van Persie has become the latest football figure to be linked with daytime Channel 4 show Countdown.
First, former Match of the Day and ‘The Premiership’ presenter Des Lynam had a go at presenting it, then Sky Sports’ heroic anchor Jeff Stelling got the gig.
Since then, football’s ‘Mr Intelligent’ Clarke Carlisle has even made an appearance, and now van Persie’s name has come up in the latest daily ‘conundrum.’
The Red Devils forward has been leaving Premier League defenders puzzled for years, and now he’s doing the same to Countdown contestants – sort of!
And believe it or not, van Persie is not the first Manchester United star to make an appearance (of sorts) on the show.
Ryan Giggs once surprised co-host Rachel Riley – a Manchester United fan – with flowers and a club shirt to mark her 1,000th appearance on the show.
