Wenger trusts Van Persie’s commitment.

Boss Arsene Wenger dismissed the possibility that Robin Van Persie will leave the club after many reports have appeared in the press linking the Dutch striker with a possible leave from Emirates. Van Persie himself stated that he has no intention of leaving Arsenal, but the manager felt the need to defend his player.

“There is no better way [to show your commitment to the Club],” said Wenger.

“People speak about the length of contracts but what you want from a player, as long as he is at the Club, is to give absolutely 100 per cent. On that front you cannot fault Robin. He is committed, every day he is focused in training, and I am pleased that he got two goals again.

Robin Van Persie – I am committed to Arsenal

Arsenal’s team captain Robin Van Persie snapped after all the rumours relating him to a possible leave in January or June, and he offered a statement for the club’s official website dismissing every story the newspapers came up with. The Dutch striker also vowed his commitment to The Gunners and to the captaincy he now holds

“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.
