Van Persie Wished Arsenal Well After Dressing Room Visit On Sunday
Manchester United striker Robin van Persie visited the Arsenal dressing room after he scored the winner at Old Trafford on Sunday, according to reports.
The Dutchman netted the only goal of the game in the first half to consign us to our first league defeat since the opening day of the season and close the gap on us to five points.
The 30-year-old drew huge criticism from sections of the Arsenal support for his wild celebration with many feeling he showed a distinct lack of respect to the club that made him the player he is today.
However, it seems RVP still holds the club a little closer to his heart than his over-zealous celebrations suggest as he took the time to visit his old team mates after the game to congratulate them on their impressive season so far.
The Daily Star claim that many of the players had already boarded the team bus but he was apparently warmly received by the players and staff members that were there, and he’s understood to have expressed his delight at how well the club is doing this season.
Personally, I’m not a fan of this as he made his feelings clear when he celebrated his goal. Chants or no chants, Van Persie should know better than to act like that to the club that stood by him through six injury-ravaged years.
But I suppose he could have let the moment get the better of him and it was decent of him to wish us well, but let’s hope we’re the one’s celebrating in his face when he comes to the Emirates in the New Year.
