by on December 18, 2011

Arsenal captain recently had an interview with Dutch Magazine Voetba. The Dutchman spoke about a number of things including Fabregas, becoming Arsenal captain and new signings. Van Persie has been in excellent goal scoring form this season. He mentioned he was happy that Wenger signed experience players in the summer.

Van Persie on becoming Arsenal captain at the start of the season and getting help from Vermaelen.

“[Becoming captain] has been a kind of natural process. Off the pitch you notice it. I organise the group social outings, which ranges from a night out to a golf day.”

“If I didn’t do it, no one else would but I really enjoy doing this. And now I’m getting help from Thomas Vermaelen and different players. Everyone joins in organising.”

On Arsenal summer signings and Wenger signing experience players.

“But in end the club signed a number of players. And I’m really happy we didn’t just get young talent. The boss has decided to choose experience. And you notice that experience in their performances”

“You can see some of the lads we have signed have been around as professionals for a while,”

“They jumped on the chair and did their act. It was hilarious. Mertesacker had the performance of the night. He did Rihanna and it was brilliant. We really had a top night as a squad.”

Van Persie on the departure of Cesc Fabregas in the summer to Barcelona.

“Of course, the departure of Cesc was going to be a setback”

“‘There are only five players in the world the calibre of Cesc and that leaves a gap, a massive one.”
