Evra slams Arsenal fans for jeering Man Utd pal Van Persie

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra has hit out at Arsenal fans for jeering Robin van Persie. Van Persie kept his nerve to convert his penalty in yesterday's 1-1 draw.

"People forget what he achieved for [Arsenal]," Evra told "But he showed them that he hasn't made the wrong choice. It was a long time that he didn't win the league [at Arsenal]. He has come to Manchester United and won the league.

"He did a good job for Arsenal and I was really disappointed for him. I think he felt it as well. To take that penalty he showed what a world-class, top player he is. He kept his nerves down to score that penalty and I am happy for him."

 Should the home fans showed greater respect? Or are Gooners right to be angry with RvP? Give us your shout below...
