Van Persie desperate for silverware

Posted by

Robin van Persie has missed most of the season with injury and returned to full match action only recently but the Arsenal striker is on fire.

The Dutch international says that the Gunners need to win silverware this season since they have come so close to winning both the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. The 24-year old says:

We have to win at least one trophy this season. If we don’t, then we would have played all the fantastic football for nothing.

This is our moment and we need to win something. We all realise we are in a fantastic position and this has to be our year.

I am not a day dreamer. I really think we can win the title and the Champions this season.

Why not? We have the qualities and we just have to stick together and believe in it. Belief can take you very far in football.

It is still in our hands to win the double and we have to take these opportunities because we have something special here at Arsenal.

Arsenal do indeed have a great chance of doing a glorious Double but they need to return to winning ways in the Premiership. Arsene Wenger’s men have drawn their last 4 Premier League matches and are now potentially 3 points off the pace.
