Arsenal Name van Persie Club Captain
As predicted, Arsenal`s Robin van Persie has been named club captain after the sale of Spaniard Cesc Fabregas to Bacelona.
van Persie had been the the vice captain ever since Fabregas was appointed skipper after William Gallas was stripped of the armband for being a bit of a girl.
The Dutchman now takes on the full responsibility as he is, as far as I can remember, now Arsenal`s longest serving player after spending 7 years so far in North London.
You can read Rob`s first "captain`s notes" on the club's official website.
Let`s get behind van Persie and his boys and wish him the best of luck in becoming the first Arsenal captain since 2005 to lift some silverware.
