Arsenal supporters were heart broken when last year Robin van Persie announced that he will not renew his contract. However, to worsen their pain, he joined Manchester United.
The Dutch international published a long statement on his website claiming how he disagrees with the way Arsenal are planning to move forward and their ambitions.
“I personally have had a great season but my goal has been to win trophies with the team and to bring the club back to its glory days.
“Out of my huge respect for Mr. Wenger, the players and the fans I don’t want to go into any details, but unfortunately in this meeting it has again become clear to me that we in many aspects disagree on the way Arsenal FC should move forward.”
Now seeing his side 12 points behind the former team must be a comforting sight for the ex Arsenal captain right. Surely, it will be for the gunner supporters.
He stated that no matter what, he will always love Arsenal and the fans but his actions after the latest goal against gunners tell another story.
Reaching the twilight years of his career, Robin van Persie needs to play at the top level but now United lie 9th in the table with low ambitions of somehow reaching top 4 and an average manager.
So is Van Persie releasing a statement against Man United like he did when he was at Arsenal?
He really should because if he treated gunners like that after 8 long years of support then with United it has been just one year. Plus it was all about ambitions for him right, then he must question Manchester United’s ambitions.
