Arsenal skipper set to stay

Robin van Persie has confirmed his commitment to the Emirates sideArsenal talisman Robin Van Persie has stated that he is fully committed to Arsenal Football Club, despite reports recently linking him with a move away from the Emirates Stadium.

Van Persie’s future had been put in doubt in recent weeks, as the Gunners’ captain is now in his final two years of his current contract, whilst talks of an extension have been thought to of broken down.

However the Dutch star revealed on Sunday that the Arsenal fans should not worry.
“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.

Van Persie continued, “I see stories which make me laugh, but I can see how frustrating it is from the fans’ point of view. But I am committed to Arsenal. I am captain, and fans should not believe everything they read.

“As for that house story, the house has been for sale for a while, but I’m not living on the streets or anything, I have found a really nice house, and yes, it’s in London! So I want to put that straight, I am committed, and I will show that on the pitch.”
Van Persie has been impressive so far this season scoring 5 Premier League goals in his 8 appearances.
