Why Arsenal fans should understand Van Persie's move to United

With Van Persie set to make his return to the Emirates Stadium this weekend, explains why Arsenal fans should understand the Dutchman's decision to leave last summer...

"I've thought long and hard about it, but I have decided not to extend my contract."

"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."

The story is too old to be commented.
