Arsenal can soon challenge Man City, says van Persie

23 May 2019, 00:40

Arsenal could soon challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title, says former striker Robin van Persie.

The last title the Gunners won the trophy was back in 2004 and van Persie is positive his former side can challenge under the new boss Unai Emery. The Gunners eventually finished fifth in the recently concluded domestic campaign. Though, despite that, Robin van Persie believes Arsenal are capable of pushing for a Premier League trophy.

“They’re close already, they’ve been close for so many years,” van Persie told BBC.

“Of course they can, yes, because they’re close already, they’ve been close for so many years. It goes in periods. Now you have Manchester City, who are doing unbelievable. To win back-to-back titles is very special – that shows, really, that you’re a proper team,”  he explained.

“But it goes in phases. Maybe [City manager] Pep Guardiola will leave next year and that does something to a club. Maybe Liverpool will take over and they will dominate for the next few years. But I hope and wish Arsenal all the best to win the title. I know how difficult it is.”

The Dutchman who was playing for Feyernood hanged his boots from international football on Sunday 12th.
