Arsène Wenger on Van Persie being a leader

by on December 18, 2011

Arsène Wenger spoke about Arsenal’s current captain Robin Van Persie saying how the Dutchman is a “great leader“. The Frenchman also said when Van Persie first came to the club in 2004 you wouldn’t have predicted him being captain of Arsenal one day. Then mentioned once when he got sent off in 2005 against Southampton and how he has changed over the years to become a leader.

“For me Robin is a great leader, when he came to this club you would not have predicted that, that’s credit to him.”

“Seven or eight years ago, after Southampton for example [in 2005 when he was sent off for a challenge on Graeme Le Saux] you would not predict that this guy would become captain of Arsenal.”

“He has been outstanding as a human being, not only as a player.”
