Robin van Persie insists Arsenal can be proud of their progress this season - declaring the Gunners had won the "respect" of the footballing world.

Arsene Wenger´s men have seen a campaign which promised so much fall apart over the past two months. But the Holland forward maintains the Gunners have rightly earned a new set of fans with a positive approach this season - and will soon get the rewards their beautiful game deserves.

"All of England, the whole world, everyone watching, has been saying ´what a fantastic team!´," Van Persie told the official Arsenal magazine. "We just have to make the last step, to win trophies, because for the last three years we haven´t won anything and that´s disappointing."
