Football legend, Marco van Basten has urged Robin van Persie to sign a new contract for the Gunners, and claims Manchester City and Chelsea do not have the class of the North London outfit.
We`re all acutely aware that Robin van Persie`s contract is winding down, we`re also aware that he`s friggin` awesome, one might go as far as to say he`s the best striker in the world at the moment, many of us are worried at the prospect of losing him.
That`s not to say he can`t be replaced, any player can be replaced as Wenger has proved time after time, but it just makes it all the more easier to keep these world class players.
We all believe Arsenal is the best place for RvP to play, and his fellow Dutchman agrees, sighting our club's class, style of play and even our shirts as reason to stay.
"Robin must not leave Arsenal. You can`t compare my situation at Ajax. The big difference is that Robin is already at a big club.
"Robin has been in London for six years. He can`t help it that Arsenal have won nothing in that time. So much has changed in those six years in the Premier League. Chelsea have become a big club and have massive financial resources."
"Manchester City have become a big force and are richer than any other club."
"Manchester United and Liverpool have American owners. The amount of money which is flowing to these clubs for transfers is unbelievable. Arsenal operate differently. I admire that."
"And I still think Arsenal are the most beautiful club in England. At Man City and Chelsea, they will never have that class and style. Arsenal have the most amazing stadium, they have a style of play, they have a beautiful shirt - in every way I consider Arsenal as the ultimate football club."
"It is the club where Robin belongs.``
Being an Arsenal fan, I might be wearing a Deirdre Barlow sized pair of rose tinted specs, but I`m somewhat inclined to agree. We fit Robin just as much as he fits us.
And you just can`t buy our class.
