Wenger refuses to be drawn on former player's future

Published Add your comment

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to have his say on Robin van Persie's Manchester United.

Reports suggest the Dutchman is unhappy with life under David Moyes at Old Trafford and is looking to leave the club in the summer.

Van Persie left Arsenal for Manchester United in hope that he would be able to win trophies and to play under Sir Alex Ferguson.

The 30-year-old Dutchman managed to win his first Premier League title last season, however the Premier League champions have struggled for form under Moyes this season.

Wenger did not rule out making a move to re-sign Van Persie in the summer before Arsenal's home match against Manchester United on February 21.

And the Frenchman has again distanced himself from rumours of Van Persie's apparent unrest at Manchester United.

When asked if he heard Van Persie's comments after Manchester United's Champions League defeat against Olympiakos, Wenger said: "I didn't hear it and wouldn't like to comment on comments I haven't heard."
