Arsenal's Van Persie: Too big a gap with Man Utd

Robin van Persie says there is a big gap between Arsenal and English champions Manchester United.

While Gunners boss Arsene Wenger insists they're closer than critics claim, striker Van Persie said: "We have not really been close in the semi-final battle (Champions League) against Manchester United.

"That is the problem. In England you have to be very good to win something."
