Robin van Persie was keen not to burn all his bridges with the Gunners
Manchester United new boy Robin van Persie insists that there are no hard feelings with Arsenal.
The Dutchman is likely to be given a hostile welcome on his return to the Emirates however, it appears that unlike Samir Nasri and Ashley Cole, he still talks highly of the club.
“From my side and Arsenal’s side, there is no hard feeling. No-one is angry with me and I’m not angry with them,” van Persie told reporters.
“Arsenal are part of my life. They’ve been great to me. We didn’t agree on the future - that’s life.
“When I have to make tough decisions in my life I listen to the little boy inside me. That little boy was screaming ‘Manchester United’.
“Manchester United breathes football. This club is the perfect match for me.”
