“We haven’t set a date but I will have a meeting with the boss like we did before now. We will be having a meeting about my future and lots of other things.” This statement from the free scoring Arsenal captain Robin Van Persie came during an acceptance speech for the Football writers’ player of the year award.
Van Persie was effusive in his praise of Arsenal and Arsene Wenger, stating that “Arsenal is an unbelievable club. The player I am today is because of Arsenal. When I actually signed the deal to join Arsenal, it was a dream come true…..whatever happens with me, I will always be a Gunner.”
