The Newcastle star winger Hatem Ben Arfa declared that people shouldn’t look too much into the fight that goalkeeper Tim Krul had with Arsenal’s captain Robin Van Persie after the late winner scored by Vermaelen in the 94th minute.
According to the French international Robin’s attitude is not their problem and the Toon’s shouldn’t waste time concentrating on that when what they should do is concentrate on the next few games.
“Van Persie is not our problem. We can’t waste energy on him, it must all go on those last 10 games and we must concentrate on getting as many points from the 30 as we can. That’s all finished, we now just have to keep our heads up high.”
Newcastle’s goalkeeper Tim Krul declared himself disappointed in what happened with his Dutch national team colleague:
“I was disappointed with the incident involving Robin,” he told the club’s official website.
“We are both professional sportsmen and what happens on the pitch stays on the pitch.
“We are playing in arguably the best and toughest league in the world and things like this happen.
“There is only one thing on my mind during a game and that is to win.”
The situation is likely to come to life again next time when the Dutch national squad will get together.
Unfortunately for Krul, if the manager will decide to cut somebody from the team to avoid incident that somebody will certainly not be Robin.
