Swansea City goalkeeper Michel Vorm describes Manchester United striker Robin van Persie as a modern day "Pele".

The pair are Holland teammates.

"I've known Robin for years and cannot believe how he has developed into such a complete footballer," Vorm told De Telegraaf.

"For me, he is like Pele. I think Van Persie does so well. He is Dutch and a friend, but my God, he's good.

"Van Persie is more of a team player than Luis Suarez and Sergio Aguero. I will never forget that he had the highest mileage in his last season at Arsenal for all other players in the Premier League.

"How can a striker do that?"
