‘So difficult to name one’ Ex-Gunner picks two Arsenal teammates as best players he has played with

Robin van Persie has named just two former Arsenal teammates among the six most talented players he played with.

The Dutchman spent 8 years at Arsenal before controversially moving to Manchester United in 2012.

He spent just three seasons at Old Trafford before he left England, but he named more United teammates among the most talented players he has played with.

Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp are the two former Gunners he believes were superbly talented among the colleagues he had at the Emirates.

He told the BBC as quoted by The Daily Mail: ‘I would go for Dennis Bergkamp, Thierry Henry, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Wayne Rooney and Ruud van Nistelrooy.’

Just Arsenal Opinion

Van Persie destroyed his legacy when he left Arsenal for United, so it is not a surprise that he didn’t name many Gunners on his list.

However, he played with some of the finest Arsenal players including Cesc Fabregas and Kolo Toure.

The idea of the best teammate you have played with is very subjective and we just have to accept Van Persie’s list if we care about it.

However, it takes nothing away from the stars who were his teammates at the Emirates.

  1. F**k VP Totteringham drew at Soton and Manure drew at Newcastle yesterday.. so much for having games in hand eh.. I wish we played today to extend the gap further and hand them more games in hand 😆

      1. Yes lets not get cocky. We have Man City next and if we lose, Spurs/United will again have 2/3 games at hand.

  2. There is no reason to gag people. If one feels cocky let them do. There is nothing wrong with that. Is it an offence for one to show excitement? I always find it puzzling that some of our supporters want to show meekness all the time except when we get bad results!
    It is true we are meeting Man City next. The question is “So what?” We are the Arsenal and will remain so. Our success stretches years back while Man City is just an upstart. A time is coming when we shall regain our rightful place. Anyone who saw how we began the season will be right to celebrate where we are now. Who could have imagined it? Some naysayers had even started to imagine we could be relegated! As usual the Arteta out brigade had started sharpening their tools. Why then should anyone be rebuked for being elated at our current situation? We should enjoy ourselves because that is the whole essence of supporting a club.

    1. David thank you.. spoken like a true Arsenal fan however forget about those naysayers responding to my above comment.. especially PJ who has always been going on about how poor we are all season.. always abusive of Xhaka who in my opinion is by far our best midfielder.. I will be cocky if I want to.. I might even stick out a cock 😏 but that will be taking it too far but for everyone who said we would not make the top for before New year.. here’s to being cocky.. eat your hearts out 😆
