Robin Van Persie: Arsenal Has Only Itself to Blame for Captain's Desire to Leave
Arsenal has only itself to blame for captain Robin van Persie's desire to leave the club after the most impressive season of his Premier League career.
The club's lack of commitment to winning trophies is starting to become a real problem. One solution to this problem is bringing world-class players to the Emirates, which is something that rarely happens anymore.
There was one part of Van Persie's recent statement on his future that was particularly interesting:
I personally have had a great season but my goal has been to win trophies with the team and to bring the club back to its glory days. Out of my huge respect for Mr. Wenger, the players and the fans I don’t want to go into any details, but unfortunately in this meeting it has again become clear to me that we in many aspects disagree on the way Arsenal FC should move forward.
Would Arsenal win the EPL in 2012-13 with a few major signings?
It's hardly a surprise that Van Persie feels this way, and I would imagine that many of the fans are also disappointed with how the club is being run.
Arsenal has shown that it's unwilling to keep its own top players and sign other team's top players in the transfer market.
Why would any star player want to be part of a club that operates like this?
Unless the Gunners change the way they operate in the transfer market, Van Persie won't be the only top player to leave the Emirates in the near future.
Gunners fans shouldn't be mad at the Dutch striker for not wanting to extend his contract. Instead, they should be angry at the club for not doing what it takes to win trophies in England.
