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.
