The young Dutchman is apparently showing signs to talent in football and golf, but Van Persie is happy for his son to remain at the current club he is playing for.
Van Persie said on the situation to NUsport magazine:
I honestly have to say that he [Shaqueel] has got a lot of talent for football. I recognise a lot of stuff of myself in him. His coach is really great. Arsenal has invited him a couple of times to come and play there but he likes it at his club. He’s sensitive for a good atmosphere. Just like me.
He loves to play golf. You’ve got some great golf courses here. He’s taking lessons and we regularly play a round. Sometimes he beats me! He’s got a great gift for where the ball has to go. My shots sometimes end up in the bush; his always go straight. He says: ‘Dad, I’m going to chip now, gimme this or that club.’ He can do that perfectly as well.
