Former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie’s flawless first-time volley against Aston Villa in April 2013 has been voted the best-ever goal of the Premier League era. Van Persie got the award at a Legends of Football occasion in London, celebrating 25 seasons of Premier League football. Gone to by EPL legends like Ryan Giggs, Michael Owen, and Alan Shearer, the occasion raises money for charity Nordoff Robins, with the Premier League also donating £100,000 to the cause.

Voted on by players who had scored more than 100 goals in the division, Van Persie talked about his pride in winning the award: “It’s a huge honor. Especially because it is picked by players from the hardest league in the world.
“With a goal like that you don’t even think about what will happen, just make the most of it and see what happens. It takes a bit of courage as you don’t know what’s going to happen.”
The philanthropy occasion raised £404,000 for Nordoff Robbins, which specialize use of music to facilitate physical and emotional prosperity for several individuals with handicaps. More than £7million has been brought up in complete from past occasions.
