van Persie 'Committed' To Arsenal

van Persie 'Committed' To Arsenal

In light of recent concerns that Arsenal captain, Robin van Persie may look to quit the Gunners as his contract winds down, the skipper has reaffirmed his commitment to the club in the captain`s notes of today`s matchday program.

Many Gooners, myself included, have worried that our recent history of throwing away out chances of silverware coupled with the steady stream of top players leaving the club that the Dutchman would be inclined to consider his future in North London.

However Robin has spoken of his commitment to the club.

"'I want to say something about my commitment to Arsenal because there have been many stories in the media lately,' said Van Persie.

'I am committed to Arsenal, and that`s how it is, despite people [in the media] making up stories. For example, they said I was selling my house, but that`s nothing recent, I moved house last year.

'I see stories which make me laugh, but I can see how frustrating it is from the fans` point of view. But I am committed to Arsenal. I am captain, and fans should not believe everything they read.

'As for that house story, the house has been for sale for a while, but I`m not living on the streets or anything, I have found a really nice house, and yes, it`s in London! So I want to put that straight, I am committed, and I will show that on the pitch.'


van Persie said a lot without saying anything really. The stiker is a top professional and as long as he is an Arsenal player then I`m certain he`ll be commited as any player in the red and white, however the exact same was true of Cesc Fabregas.

I guess time will tell.

If he's a 100% committed he could do the fans a massive favour by signing a new contract.

don't believe a word any player says these days about loyalty. Money is the master.
