Having completed his big money move to Manchester United, former Arsenal captain Robin van Persie must only focus on his current club and respect the one where he stayed 8 long years and became the superstar what he is right now.
The Dutchman won his first ever league title of career with the Red Devils and once again topped the goal scoring charts in the premiership. After all that wonderful time with gunners, what was the need to come up with an absurd statement that made absolutely no sense at all.
“It was difficult because it wasn’t only me who decided where I went to play,” he said. “It also depended on my former club as well and how they saw it. And then of course you always have these games that the directors play.”
Now, he talks about club’s involvement in transfer. He has no point there as the forward was under contract with Gunners and if Wenger wanted, he could have opted to keep van Persie and he had all the right to do that. Owned by Arsenal and they should not be involved in decision making right, baffling.
Arsene did let him go as business sense prevailed. Still, van Persie had a wonderful relation with the club, supporters, and the manager. The least he could do is respecting them.
Secondly, whether or not it was difficult, whether or not it was not only him deciding his future, does it really matter? No, because at the end of the day, van Persie got the move he wished for when he revealed the fact of little boy inside him eh.
According to him, United was the perfect choice, the Dutch striker stated:
“When I have to make tough decisions in my life I listen to the little boy inside me. That little boy was screaming ‘Manchester United”
Then, having got his dream move to Manchester United, having got exactly what he desired, why is he even complaining? perhaps he wants gunner supporters to hate him more. Therefore, Van Persie should just zip up about this issue and respect his former club Arsenal.
