Persie is good. No doubt about that. What he says might be an over kill...

As good as Messi, must be considered a joke or lack of intelegence.

I dont like players who is telling how good theyre gonna be. Van Persie might be the best player in the world, but I dont like him telling before he reach the level. He might be, he might fail.

If you read the Interview, he comment on his manager wich said he is even good as messi. Van Persie sees what his manager mean, but he cant agree with it, because his long injury.. But next season, he have a massive desire to make that level also!

The media blows this out, as always. Yes he is a inteligente player ;)
