Evra: Van Persie, van Nistelrooy share traits

15 December 2012 13:05

Manchester United defender Patrice Evra has likened team-mate Robin van Persie to another Dutchman Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Van Persie moved to Manchester United for a fee thought to be 24 million pounds, leaving Arsenal without their star striker.

But the Dutchman has had terrific success at the current Premier League leaders, scoring 11 goals already in the process of helping United to the top of the table.

Evra said of van Persie: "He seems like he has played for us for many years and he reminds me of Ruud Van Nistelrooy. I played with Ruud when I signed for United and remember what a great player he was.

"First of all, they are both Dutch. But it’s the class and the touch they both have when you pass the ball to them.

"Robin is just a top-class player and you can see why United wanted him and why the gaffer worked so hard to get him.

"He has started so well and I just hope he can keep going because, at United, you have to do that in every game and we have to do everything we can to make sure he feels good.

"I hope he can keep going because he can be one of the best."
