"I hated seeing Robin van Persie score for Manchester United" - Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger admits watching Robin van Persie score for Manchester United was torture.

The £22million Dutch striker has already netted more goals this season than ALL his former Arsenal team-mates put together.

And Wenger confessed that Van Persie’s stunning strike on his first start for United against Fulham made uncomfortable viewing on Match of the Day last weekend.

He said: “I must say it was a fantastic goal, a typical Van Persie goal. But what was a bit strange to me was that he had the wrong shirt on!

“Why is he jumping around in a shirt like that? I don’t know.

“I do know, but I don’t like it too much.”

Wenger forked out £24million on Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski to fill the gap left by Van Persie, who scored 30 Premier League goals for the North Londoners last season.
