I expect Van Persie to leave Arsenal – David Dein
David Dein, Arsenal’s former vice-chairman, has said that he expects Robin van Persie to leave the club, after the statement he released on his personal website last week. He however urged the club to do all they can to keep him.
“He has had such a wonderful season and he’s been there eight years. He’s the club captain, he means a lot to the club and to the fans,” he told reporters. “Once a player comes out and says something like that it’s normally the prelude to a departure. But no doubt they will do all they can to try and keep him and make sure he sees out his last year.
“All I would hope, for the stability of the club, is whether he stays or whether he goes, it happens quickly. You don’t want to see what happened last year when you had Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas stringing it out.
“Clubs this week are going back for pre-season training. You want to have a settled squad. I hope that whatever happens with Robin, it happens quickly.”
