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.
