Van Persie’s decision to swap Arsenal for Man Utd was justified, says Wright

The Dutch striker will retire from football at the end of the season and a Gunners legend believes his switch to Old Trafford was the right choice

Arsenal legend Ian Wright says that Robin van Persie was justified in his decision to leave the Gunners for Manchester United.

The 35-year-old Dutch striker will retire from football at the end of the season after returning to boyhood club Feyenoord, where he made his debut aged 17.

Van Persie won the FA Cup with Arsenal and a Premier League title for Manchester United during his time in England, but courted controversy among Gunners supporters when he penned a public letter in 2012 stating that the club’s ambition did not match his own – before joining United that summer for £20 million ($25m).
