Van Persie: Arsenal made it clear to me to leave

Manchester United and Arsenal ex-pleayer Robin Van Persie speaks on his move to part with Manchester, Daily Mail reported

'I think you can compare it with being married. Me and Arsenal were married for eight years and after eight years my wife got a bit tired of me. I felt that. I had loads of chats with Arsene Wenger and Ivan Gazidis about signing a new contract but they didn't offer me a new deal so I had to explore my options,’ he told BT Sport.

The Dutch soccer player for Arsenal from 2004 to 2012, and from 2012 to 2015 for Manchester United as they paid £ 24 million for him.
