Video: Celebrity Arsenal fan calls Robin van Persie a ‘prick’ to his face over Man United transfer

Comedian and Arsenal fan Romesh Ranganathan took the chance to say what so many Gooners must have been itching to tell Robin van Persie for years.

Watch the video clip below from A League of Their Own, as Ranganathan gives a blunt response to being introduced to Van Persie, who notably became a hate-figure among Arsenal fans for leaving for Manchester United in 2012.

Ranganathan simply tells the Dutchman: “You’re a prick mate” before joking he’ll end up leaving the show half way through to go and do A Question of Sport instead.

Van Persie recently retired from football, having had spells at Fenerbahce and Feyenoord since leaving Man Utd in 2015.
