This Is How To Deal With Millions Of People Mistaking You For A Famous Footballer On Twitter

@RVP is not a multi-millionaire Dutch footballer but an Indian IT consultant. He gets tons of abuse on Twitter but his responses are priceless.

As you might expect he gets confused for Van Persie quite a lot by fans who give him all sorts of online abuse.

No one wants to be called an "ABSALOUT DICK". But thankfully, Mr Prasad a) has a marvelous sense of humour b) knows enough about football to take the piss out of his haters and c) is wonderful.

Conclusive proof that @rvp is Ravi Visvesvaraya Prasad & NOT Robin Van Persie who is @Persie_Official

He engages in some mild trolling of Manchester United fans.

@daithi3345 @toontomm i was a very good football player long before @persie_official was even born. Matt busby should have signed me up.

He taunts the injury-prone Van Persie with his healthy legs.

My legs are far sturdier & stronger than the brittle injury-prone feeble legs of Robin Van Persie @Persie_Official

He helps psyche out United's opposition.

Me intimidating the Aston Villa team before the finals. They got so scared that they allowed me to score a hat trick.

@RVP's good-humoured responses has become a bit of a cult hero.

Breaking : Manchester United complete signing of @rvp ! Holy mother of God.

And there's no chance of him giving up his username - instead he's threatening to buy the REAL Van Persie's account.

@terminalfix NO. i will not give up @rvp since all my corporate clients follow me at @rvp. instead i will buy up @persie_official handle.

He's not alone in being the figure of misguided internet football hate. Spare a thought for @Moysey, who is not hapless Manchester United boss David Moyes but marketing manager Sarah Moyes from Polmont, Scotland.

I am no relation to the football manager David Moyes. Can people please stop mentioning me in tweets, I'm pretty sure he has his own account

Or New York-based theatre director @AVB, AKA Ashley Van Buren, who is not former Chelsea and Tottenham manager André Villas-Boas.

You're better off without me, Mein Herr. #Cabaret RT @StRobbie @avb You're a shit manager

Something magical happened in the history of People Everyone Mistakes As Famous Football People last night when ALL THREE OFFERED SUPPORT TO EACH OTHER.

Twitter: @avb

@AVB notes that her "guy gets fired a lot", referring to Villas-Boas' patchy record as a manager in England. Bookmakers are currently offering odds of 6/1 that David Moyes will be the next Premier League manager to be relieved of his duties and Robin Van Persie is currently out for at least a month with another injury.

So maybe this trio can get on with their lives, without the distraction of industrial strength Twitter hate.

@RVP has already suggested that @AVB produces a musical that tells the story of the mistaken identity club. That is something BuzzFeed would pay to see.

@avb it would be absolutely marvellous if you could compose & choreograph a musical about us mistaken identity club. Broadway here we come.
