Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has again rubbished rumours that he wants to leave the Gunners during the January transfer window.
Speaking to the Club’s official website ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League game against Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium, the Dutchman was full of praise for the fans who have shown their support and with the striker confessing that he takes the fans very seriously adding that he is passionate about what he is doing as he loves the game.
Asked about the two positive results against Sunderland and Olympique Marseille, the 28-year old was honest enough to admit that it’s too early to be happy about performances as there’s still a long way to go and with many things to prove.
van Persie is with no surprise Arsenal’s top scorer this season with seven goals, five in the English Premier League and two in the Champions League and surely determined to move closer in the Top Scorers table.
Ahead of tomorrow’s game, the Dutchman said:
[The fans' support] is nice to hear. I read all the comments – I take the fans very, very seriously and I think they’re great.
It’s wonderful to know people like what you do. I think people can see that I’m passionate about what I am doing and that I love the game, so it’s a big compliment and I love to hear those things.
But we still have a long way to go and a lot of things to prove – it’s still early in the season.
So my aim is just to keep things going and move from strength to strength.
