Arsenal defender Koscielny: Man Utd pair Rooney, Van Persie can play together

Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny feels Manchester United pair Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie can play together.

Koscielny was disappointed to see Van Persie leave for United in the summer.

Asked about Rooney, Koscielny said of the Manchester United striker: "He is very clever, even if Robin van Persie is even smarter.

"He goes back to the midfield quite often. Rooney likes the ball and to assist."
