It is fully expected that Robin Van Persie will sign a new contract extension at Arsenal this summer, well assuming Arsenal hold on to third place of course, but according to the Holland legend Patrick Kluivert his fellow countryman needs to move on if he wants to win some more trophies before he retires.
Kluivert said: “He is a player who is a leader in the strikeforce of Arsenal, a leader in the team, but for Robin it is nice to look forward to another club to win prizes. That is the most important thing.
“He can’t do anything any better with Arsenal. He needs to win big prizes. As a player, you want big prizes and I think if he goes to another club he can achieve that.”
The fact is that there is nowhere any more that GUARANTEES you will win trophies in this day and age. Manchester City have spent fortunes and won nothing this season, Barcelona are out of the race for La Liga and losing to Chelsea in the Champions League semi-final. Bayern Munich no longer dominate German football, There are many clubs that can win Serie A nowadays, so surely he has just as much chance of winning something with Arsenal as with anyone else?
