Gunners boss won’t sell his stars to United.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that he will never sell another one of his stars to Manchester United again, talkSPORT reports.
The long suffering boss let star striker Robin Van Persie move to Old Trafford in the summer of 2012 and the Dutch ace immediately paid back his £24m fee by firing the Red Devils to the Premier League title.
And furthermore, the 30-year-old then punished his former club more by notching the winner against them in Sunday’s clash at Old Trafford.
Wenger later claimed that he did not want to part with Van Persie but the fee on offer was just too good to turn down and Rene Meulensteen, then a coach at with United, helped push the deal through.
And now Wenger has seen the error of his ways and has categorically told new United boss David Moyes that he can forget about getting his hands on anymore of his coveted stars in the near future.
“It was a special circumstance,” Wenger said about the transfer. “I will not act for Arsenal for the next 100 years but I do not think it will happen again in my time.”
Before kick off on Sunday Arsenal were eight points ahead of United in the Premier League table but Van Persie’s solitary goal cut that deficit down to five points.
