Robin van Persie claims that he left Arsenal for Manchester United seven years ago because they ‘got tired’ of him and refused to offer him a new deal.

The Dutchman left Arsenal for Manchester United for £24m in 2012 and immediately won the Premier League title in Sir Alex Ferguson’s last season in charge.

Van Persie appeared on BT as a pundit for Arsenal’s clash with Burnley and explained why he had left the Gunners after eight years.

“You can compare [me being at Arsenal] to being married. Me and my wife – Arsenal – were married for eight years.

“After eight years, my wife, possibly got a bit tired of me. Those are the facts.

“If Arsenal are not offering you a new deal… you can have different views on things but the fact is Arsenal never offered me a new deal.

“Then you have a look around. I was ambitious. I still wanted to win the league. That is life.
