Blackpool boss Ian Holloway can see why Robin van Persie wants to leave Arsenal.

Ollie wrote in the Sunday Mirror: "In Arsene Wenger, they have an absolute genius for a manager, a guy who doesn't feel the need to spend massive amounts of money because he has the vision to recognise potential and develop it.

"But Arsenal have been left behind - and not just because other clubs pay bigger transfer fees and wages.

"Van Persie says he wants to win trophies.

"It's now seven years since Arsenal's last piece of silverware."
