Michel Vorm: Robin van Persie is 'like a ballet dancer'
MICHEL Vorm has spelled out his admiration for Robin van Persie ahead of their rapid reunion at the Liberty, declaring: “He’s like a ballet dancer.”
Vorm played alongside van Persie for the Netherlands as they drew 1-1 with Portugal in the Algarve on Wednesday night.
But they will be on opposite sides on Saturday as Swansea City host Manchester United on the opening day of the new Premier League season.
Swansea will set out with the aim of silencing van Persie, last season’s 26-goal leading scorer in the top flight.
But Vorm accepts that stopping the 30-year-old will be no easy task.
“The best player in England? Robin van Persie,” the Swansea goalkeeper said.
“It makes me so proud to be a Dutchman.
“I thoroughly enjoy his style of play — he’s like a ballet dancer.”
