Former Arsenal and Manchester United forward Robin van Persie has explained why Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s goal against Genk was special.
Liverpool produced a confident win in Belgium, as Chamberlain scored two out of four goals of his team.
Ox’s second goal was extraordinary, and van Persie believes 1 of 10 forwards could make such beauties.
“The second, third and fourth goals were all amazing, especially the second. It’s so beautiful.” Van Persie said to BT Sport (via Daily Mail).
“Most strikers don’t imagine it, eight out of 10 don’t even think about it, two who actually think about it, one of the two can’t even do it. The way he executed that goal is so beautiful.
What a goal by the Ox @Alex_OxChambo 😍

“I’m so happy for him, I used to play with him at Arsenal, I saw that ability. He has potential to be a top player, if he can do those type of goals he can become that type of player. That goal is like one you will score once in your life.” van Persie added.
