His dad’s Manchester United striker Robin van Persie so you’d expect 7-year-old Shaqueel to have picked up a few footie moves. But the youngster has shown real flair for the beautiful game – and has even been training with both Manchester United and City – so his dad was keen to show off his moves on Instagram.
“Great trick shot by Shaqueel! GOOOOOALLLLLL Yessssssss lovely assist though,” he commented on the video that shows his son performing a scorpion trick shot in the back garden. So far the post has been liked over 97,000 times by fans.
The pair previously kicked a ball around and performed tricks in adverts for BT Sport. The videos show the father and son playing keepy-uppy challenges together.
