Van Persie wins Wenger praise

Published Add your comment

Arsene Wenger was once again left in awe at the heroics of Robin van Persie as the Arsenal captain struck twice to beat Borussia Dortmund and put the north London club through to the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The Dutchman has now scored 17 goals this season and has racked up 33 goals in 30 games for the calendar year.

Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp described the 28-year-old's display as "simply unbelievable" and his opposite number Wenger joined him in singing the striker's praises by saying: "He is in a period where he doesn't have to look for goals. They just come naturally for him, he is always in the right place at the right moment."
