Video: RvP v Rio in table tennis

Rio and RvP play no-look table tennis in preseason

By | 19th July 2013

As players across the Premier League prepare for the new season, supporters this summer have been given inside access to their downtime between sessions through social media, blogs, and official club websites. This week one of the best inside videos that we’ve seen has come out of Manchester United’s training camp, with Dutch defender Alexander Buttner posting a video of Robin van Persie and Rio Ferdinand playing table tennis against each other on his official Instagram account.

The two United stars went face to face in a game that footballers all over the world love, but chose to take a different spin on it. The two international stars opted to play no-look table tennis, and they were surprisingly impressive – despite the fact that it looks like Rio may have cheated and looked on one of his shots!

Check out the video below, and leave your comments about who’d you favor in a proper table tennis match: Robin van Persie or Rio Ferdinand? From what Premiership Talk has been told by United staff members in the past, the true table tennis star at the club is Portuguese winger Nani, who used to take on Cristiano Ronaldo in the game.
