Atromitos Athens 0-1 Fenerbahce

Robin van Persie
No Manchester United strikers have scored since the sale of Robin van Persie

Substitute Robin van Persie scored a late winner for Fenerbahce with his first touch in their Europa League play-off first leg at Atromitos Athens.

It was the Dutchman's first goal for the Turkish side following his summer move from Manchester United.

The 32-year-old, who came on in the 80th minute, has only managed 63 minutes across three games for Fener as he has struggled with a calf injury.

But he netted his first goal of the season with a late header in Greece.
