It Is Impossible Not To Be Impressed By Robin Van Persie- Wayne Rooney

It Is Impossible Not To Be Impressed By Robin Van Persie- Wayne Rooney

Van Persie has been in clinical form since his summer move from Arsenal, with two goals in the 3-1 Champions League win over Braga in midweek taking his total to 11 in 14 matches.

It Is Impossible Not To Be Impressed By Robin Van Persie- Wayne Rooney

Rooney is in no doubt that Van Persie is one of the best finishers in world football, but says it would be foolish to ignore his all-round play and how he is working to improve the players around him.

The England striker said: "Of course everyone knows he is a fantastic player and he has a calmness about him - I think he's great for the whole team.

"He's a talisman and if you can get players around him and feeding off him it's great for all of us; myself, Chicharito and all the midfield players as well.

"Last season at Arsenal was his best season in the Premier League goal-scoring wise (van Persie scored 30 goals), and he has changed his game to play on the shoulder more, to get into better goalscoring positions.

"Obviously he's a great finisher but I think he's a lot stronger and can hold the ball up better than you would think. He's a fantastic player and he's great around the squad as well."
