Hamburg striker Ruud van Nistelrooy says Arsenal ace Robin van Persie isn't a natural goal scorer. Van Nistelrooy has returned to the Holland squad for their looming Euro2012 qualifiers, while Van Persie sits them out due to injury.
"Robin said on television how difficult it was for a striker of the Oranje. He was so honest about it. I knew exactly how he felt," said the Manchester United legend.
"Van Persie does not have this in his blood. And so you see that he has no real goal-getter ... but a great player."
