Man Utd ace Van Persie: I love playing with Rooney

Robin van Persie was pleased for Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney after his double against Bayer Leverkusen last night.

Van Persie has admitted he loves playing upfront with Rooney.

The Dutchman, who scored his sixth of the season with an acrobatic effort, couldn't speak more highly of his strike partner.

"I love to play alongside Wayne," said the Dutchman.

"He has a bit of everything. He can go up front, he can play in behind. He can play the short game and the longer game."
