A simply stunning and quite frankly jaw-dropping compilation of former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has surfaced on Youtube.
The video was published by a channel called Sports Real and it shows just how clinical the Dutch forward was during his time at Old Trafford.
Van Nistelrooy signed for Manchester United in 2001 on a five-year contract after passing his medical.
The Dutch international downplayed United’s £19 million investment at the time saying, “The price is not heavy for me – it lifts me up because it means United have big confidence in me.”

Van Nistelrooy made 219 appearances for Sir.Alex Fergusons side and scored an impressive 150 goals for the Red Devils during his five seasons at Old Trafford.
The compilation video is a true tribute to the Dutch forward and will either remind older fans of how blistering he was or introduce new fans to his talent and eye for goal.
Van Nistelrooy didn’t renew his contract with United and on the 15th of July 2006, Sir.Alex Ferguson confirmed he wanted to leave the club.
Real Madrid announced two weeks later that he had signed a three-year contract after being purchased for €14 million.
