Arsene Wenger has questioned how many times Robin van Persie needs to find the net before it’s accepted that he is a centre forward to be reckoned with.

Speaking to arsenal.com Wenger said.

‘Robin has scored 28 in 27 games and still people tell me he is not a centre forward. How many goals does a centre forward have to score?’

Wenger continued.

‘His movement is exceptional and his confidence is so high that he takes advantages of all situations. I believe that the captaincy has helped to.’

Well it’s a fair question. He’s certainly not a traditional centre forward by any stretch of the imagination but he’s doing the job.
