Arsenal's Van Persie fed-up with defensive visiting teams

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie admits he's fed-up with the defensive football visiting teams display at the Emirates stadium.

"All the teams outside the top four make it a terrible experience when you play at home," said the Dutch ace. "In London, it's disappointing the way teams play. I find the difference revolting.

"But we regularly say, they treat Arsenal like that because they fears us. And it's a show of respect."

Asked about pairing Real Madrid striker Ruud van Nistelrooy in attack for Holland, Van Persie added: "It has nothing to do with me. It's the coach's choice. My opinion is irrelevant."
