Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that it pains him to see the league leaders Manchester United so far from them in the Barclays Premier League. However, he says that he could have expected this from them because of signing Robin van Persie. Wenger has praised him and said that he is one of the best strikers in the world.
“I don’t need anyone to tell me how good he is, We knew when we sold him to United that that would be the case. He is one of the best strikers in the world, so you know he will score goals for them. He scored 30 for us last year. At almost 30 he is at the peak of his game.” Wenger said.
“Now he uses all his qualities in a calm and intelligent. He has a high level of confidence in his qualities. He is more patient than he was five or six years ago. He stays up front, and you won’t see him for maybe 20 minutes. Before he used to come back into midfield, but he uses his killer instinct much better now.
