Van Persie – I prefer to help Arsenal win rather than break scoring records

The Flying Dutchman Robin Van Persie has been in terrific form for Arsenal all year and needs just one more goal to break Thierry Henry’s record of goals scored for the Gunners in a calendar year, but he doesn’t think it is the most important thing in the world.

“I will try to break the record but it’s not first on my wish list. It comes fourth or fifth, or something.
