Van Persie explains lack of celebration

Robin van Persie said he chose not to celebrate his goal on Saturday out of respect for Arsenal.

The Dutchman opened the scoring after two minutes as United beat his old team 2-1.

“I spent eight happy years at Arsenal and I have too much respect. I respect the manager, the fans, the whole club.”

“I enjoy playing with Wayne, we are similar in a way,” he said. “We can both play nine or 10, so you could say we are both nine and a half.”
