The Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie will not be at all unhappy if the club don’t win the Premiership after such a difficult season, and in fact he will be ‘proud” if Arsenal simply snatch Third Place from their bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
“I have a strong feeling that we can finish third, that would be quite an achievement, something to be proud of as a club.” the Dutchman said.
“We want to continue that record because Arsenal needs that Champions League place and I think the club deserves it because of its incredible history in the competition.”
It would certainly be a great boost to Arsenal if they get automatic qualification for the Champions League Group Stages without having to go through a difficuly play-off against another top European side after this season’s scare against Udinese.
And us Arsenal fans will get the added pleasure of finishing as top London club yet again. Tottenham will be devastated!
