Ibrahimovic tells Van Persie: You MUST leave Arsenal

AC Milan superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic has urged Robin van Persie to quit Arsenal. Ibrahimovic, who destroyed the Gunners in midweek, says RVP must go to become a 'champion'.

He told The Sun: "When you don't win anything for years, people understand why you leave like Cesc Fabregas.

"Football is all about winning. If you don't win you want to go. I don't know Robin personally but I remember him from Holland and what a talent he was - now he is complete. I don't know what he is thinking but I know what I would do.

"I have made a lot of moves in my life - I take it as a challenge, an adventure. And I have won eight titles in eight years with different clubs in different countries.

"But if you stay in one place all your life it is easy to play football. You are at home, you are in the comfort zone.

"But if you move to five different places it is a real test. If you succeed that's when you become a real champion, that's when you get more respect."
