Wenger Hails Technically Perfect RVP
Arsenal gaffer Arsene Wenger has hailed van Persie's amazing strike as 'technically perfect'.
Ever since the ball smashed into the back of the Charlton onion bag, every football fan in Europe has had some thing to say on the goal. And Arsene Wenger is no different.
'It was outstanding, quite unbelievable. Nobody expected that. When Eboue crossed I did not see anybody in the box so it thought, like many times, we have nobody in there. Then suddenly Van Persie arrives.
'Technically it was perfect, with full pace and power. I felt the ball would go over the bar at the start, then it finished in the top corner. It is the goal of a lifetime.'
When Wenger was asked if it was the best Arsenal goal under his reign, he replied,
'The best? I must check that because I have seen some good ones. But it is certainly in the top five.'
And he's never wrong.
