Van Persie insists he will always be an Arsenal player at heart

Arsenal captain Robin van Persie has thanked Arsene Wenger for making him into the player he is today and admitted that wherever his future lies, he will always be a Gunner at heart, the Daily Mail has reported.



Van Persie was speaking at the Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year award ceremony where the Arsenal striker was handed a second individual award of the campaign, after winning the PFA Player of the Year award as well. The recognition comes in honour of van Persie’s goal scoring form this season, with 35 goals in all competitions.


The Netherlands international’s future remains up in the air, however, as talks have yet to begin on extending van Persie’s contract which is due to expire in 2013. Van Persie said at the ceremony that plans for discussions are in place. He added: “We haven’t set a date but I will have a meeting with the boss…We will have a meeting about my future, and lots of other things.


Van Persie was effusive in his praise for what he believes Wenger and Arsenal have done for him since he moved to England in 2004, insisting that he would not be receiving awards if it were not for the manager. Van Persie said: “Arsenal is an unbelievable club. The player I am today is because of Arsenal. When I actually signed the deal [to join Arsenal] it was a dream come true...whatever happens with me I’ll always be a Gunner.
