Arsenal striker Robin van Persie keen to emulate talents of Barcelona’s Lionel Messi

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie would one day like to be mentioned in the same breath as Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

The 26-year-old looks set to start for the Netherlands in the 2010 World Cup final against Spain on Sunday as Bert van Marwijk’s side look to win the trophy for the first time in their history.

Despite scoring just once in this year’s competition, van Persie has still played a key role in the Netherlands’ path to the final, contributing with two assists.

The Dutchman, who also praised Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger for the impact he has had on his career, says his main target is to in the same class as Messi.

The story is too old to be commented.
