Persie To Be Bergkamp's Successor?

Persie To Be Bergkamp's Successor?

Arsene Wenger has told Van Persie to learn from Dennis Bergkamp and emulate him on the pitch.

'Dennis speaks to him. But I feel the best thing when you have Dennis in front of you is to watch what he does and try to copy it. It's very important for every player to have a role model and he can't have a better one.

'At some stage, you have to replace Dennis. Robin still has some work to do as Dennis is a genuis but I feel he has the potential to play for Arsenal.

'Will he be as good as Dennis? That is down to him. He has the ingredients. The biggest part is to do it.'

Van Persie is obviously highly regarded by Wenger, and has been steadily improving and making a name for himself as a goalscorer. Looks like Wenger has even bigger plans for the player.
