Arsene Wenger has defended Arsenal's ambition as the Robin van Persie saga dragged on.

The Holland international announced after the European Championship he would not be renewing his current deal at the Emirates Stadium, which expires at the end of next season. Van Persie made the carefully-worded announcement through Facebook, with his questioning of Arsenal's ambitions within it rankling many.

Before jetting off on the club's pre-season tour to Asia without Van Persie, Wenger was quick to defend the direction the club is headed in. "We always defend the values of the club, and the model has to be self-sustainable, otherwise it can completely go out of shape and become very fragile," the Frenchman said.
