RVP Loves Playing With Wazza

Robin van Persie says that he loves playing alongside Wayne Rooney in a front-two, after the striking duo found the back of the net against Bayer Leverkusen last night.

Rooney’s brace took him past the 200-goal mark for the Red Devils, while RVP’s spectacular hooked volley underlined his status as one of the world’s most accomplished finishers.

When the Dutchman usurped Rooney as United’s leading marksman last season, it led to them winning the Premier League at a canter, but Rooney was unimpressed.

He wants to be the main man at the sharp end of the attack, and flirted with Chelsea as a result.

But RVP’s comments after last night’s match suggest there is no professional jealousy between the two deadly hit-men, who could yet form the most explosive strike partnership English football has seen, now that Wazza is back in scoring form.

"I love to play alongside Wayne," van Persie said glowingly in the wake of his and Rooney’s exploits against Leverkusen.

"He has a bit of everything.

“He can go up front, he can play in behind. He can play the short game and the longer game."

Meanwhile, RVP was happy with the way United handled their opening game of the Champions League.

And after a few initial hiccups, he seems to think the Red Devils are beginning to hit their stride.

"I was very pleased with our team performance," he said.

"I thought we played well. When we had the ball we were very confident on it and everyone did their bit."
