Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny hailed Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney but believes that Robin van Persie is a smarter player.

The England striker scored his first goals of the season against San Marino, while the Dutchman has been in good form for the Red Devils since moving to Old Trafford in July.

“He is very clever, even if Robin van Persie is even smarter,” Koscielny said.

“He goes back to the midfield quite often. Rooney likes the ball and to assist.”
