Robin van Persie was the subject of an abusive tweet from a celebrity Arsenal fan suggesting he should retire.
Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan took to twitter to slam former Gunner Robin van Persie for his current side’s performances after Manchester United’s shock 5-3 loss to Leicester City.

Piers Morgan is not well liked by fellow Gooners, and is the kind of fan that many feel they don’t want associated with their team at times.
But when it comes to Robin van Persie Arsenal fans around the world tend to get on the same page.
Hi mate @Persie_Official – that little boy screaming ‘retirement’ yet?

United fans vindicate van Persie for his choice to swap London for Manchester by stating that he won a league title during his first season with the club, something he failed to do his entire time with Arsenal.
There is no denying however that his career has taken a bit of a nosedive since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, and with the Dutchman getting on in years he may not have many more chances at silverware.
