Robin van Persie joins Gareth Bale in ad campaign for BT Sport
Manchester United striker will appear in commercials to promote Premier League coverage
Robin van Persie is the latest star from the Premier League to join BT Sport's ad campaign.
The broadcaster has secured the rights to 38 top-flight games from next season, including 18 of the top picks, and have been busy recruiting some of the biggest names to make sure everyone knows about it.
The Manchester United striker will join fellow PFA Player of the Year nominee Gareth Bale, while Arsenal youngster Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has also been signed up to appear in the broadcaster's commercials.
Van Persie, who this week returns to the Emirates for the first time since his £24m transfer from Arsenal, scored a hat-trick against Aston Villa on Monday to move top of the Premier League goal-scoring charts. His three goals also saw United clinch the title.
Oxlade-Chamberlain, who will be a BT Ambassador for the next three years, said: "I am very pleased to be named as a BT Ambassador and to feature in the adverts and as a guest for BT Sport.
"As a young player, I hope I can bring some real insight into the Premier League, as part of the BT Sport team."
As well as Premier League games, BT Sport will also show matches from Serie A in Italy, Ligue 1 in France, Brasileiro in Brazil, Major League Soccer in the USA, Scottish Premier League games and the Bundesliga in Germany. Europa League and FA Cup matches will also be among their portfolio.
