May 26th, 2017 — 11:42am

After spending 8 seasons at the Emirates Stadium as a player of Arsenal, Robin van Persie made a move to Manchester United and this was a controversial transfer as the Dutch attacker joined a rival club of Arsenal.


This transfer was completed back on August of 2012 and during the season of 2011-12, Manchester United finished in 2nd place while Arsenal had to settle with a 3rd place finish.

So, why would Arsene Wenger allow Robin van Persie to leave and join one of their main rivals? The French manager has recently revealed the reason of why he gave the green light to make this transfer happen.

During one of the latest press conferences of Arsene Wenger, he was asked about Robin van Persieand what was his reasoning behind letting him go to Manchester United, the 67 year old manager said:

 

“I let Van Persie go in the last year of his contract because he was 29, going on 30 and he was signing a long-term contract.That is not the case with Alexis. I personally think he will sign and stay here.”

One of the questions that Arsenal supporters are constantly asking Arsene Wenger has been in relation to Alexis Sanchez and if the Chilean player will have the same destiny as Robin van Persie. Continue reading »

RVP GETS TWO-MATCH BAN

April 1st, 2017 — 5:38am

Robin van Persie is set to serve out a two-match ban for taunting a former teammate whilst in action for Fenerbahce, according to reports.


The former Arsenal and Manchester United striker celebrated his goal in the 1-0 victory over archrivals Besiktas in the Turkish Cup earlier this month.

Van Persie did his celebration in front of Oguzhan Ozyakup – whom he knows from his time in the North London outfit. Both players clashed earlier when Besiktas defender Dusko Tosic was sent off. The defender was given the marching orders for a push on Van Persie in the 18-yard box.

Van Persie scored 18 minutes from the end of the game and he quickly sought out Ozyakup. He slid in front of the skipper for the opposing sides, provoking him. The player did not take the issue lightly, speaking strongly against his action after the match. Continue reading »

VAN PERSIE: I CAN HELP VINCENT JANSSEN IMPROVE

January 16th, 2017 — 12:30pm

Former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has picked out struggling Tottenham striker Vincent Janssen as a player he wants to transform into a Premier League star.


Van Persie is convinced that he can offer tips to his fellow Dutchman that can make a big difference to the player and improve his game. The player who himself, has not been a part of Danny Blind’s plans recently believes that he can act as a mentor to the younger players to help them improve their game.

Janssen has made little impact since making the move to White Hart Lane from AZ Alkmaar in the summer for 18million euros. The 22-year old has scored just 3 goals in 20 matches this season – all of which have been from the penalty spot.

Premier League legend, RVP, who had prolific spells at Arsenal for eight years and Manchester United for three years, believes he can assist Janssen into a smooth transition and adaptation into the Premier League through his interaction with the Holland international and develop him into a bona fide star.
