Clasie is being linked with RvP's Manchester United and laid on the striker's goal for their draw with friendly opponents Ecuador.
Van Persie said: “That pass made the goal possible. That was a world-class ball. That pass gave me the opportunity to do my thing. I think that pass was more beautiful than my goal.
"The only thing I had to do was control the ball and score. That pass from Clasie was world class.”
