The saga behind Arsenal’s playmaker, Robin Van Persie is getting to point here he now feels like an outcast or less strong, a spurned lover.
After revealing on his personal website on July 4th quoting “ that he wouldn’t be signing a new contract”, most Arsenal fans have been distraught to the point of deeming him selfish.
Let’s quickly take a rain check. His performances for the last eight years (except last season) was marred by a series of long injuries spells and during such time, Arsenal fans have been patient with him because he simply was a good player whenever he became fit and displayed what he was capable of doing as a striker.
One way or the other, Arsene Wenger will try hard to keep him, no doubt, by any means necessary but not through agreeing an increase in his wages, simply because he gained recognition for being the highest scorer in the Premier league but rather observing if his golden goose of a striker can perform and exceed his manager’s expectations for the new season yet again.
Fine-from my own point of view-Robin Van Persie has a right to express his feelings about the club’s direction and who among the Arsenal fans wouldn’t especially since the last time the club earned any trophy was in 2005. But I sincerely believe there are other channels of resolving such situations. This is just my own opinion.
Presently, Robin Van Persie should feel more happy with his feelings about the club’s present direction, with the manager bringing in the likes of Olivier Giroud (Montepelier), Lukas Podolski (Cologne) and imminent Santi Cazorla (Malaga) in less than twelve weeks.
If there’s isn’t any cause for “raised eyebrows” for the swift decision-making of Arsene Wenger bringing in these new faces, then I really don’t know what else to say.
As an Arsenal fan, I believe the club is heading in the right direction and poses a future threat as one of the major contenders for the forthcoming Premier league title.
The next thing I believe the club needs to do is to cement some experience to fill the gap of right back in Arsenal’s defence line.
Once that’s done, sky’s the limit for the hope of all Arsenal fans.
