But RVP, celebrating his first league title win in his debut season with United, told The Sun: "I don't expect anything less than a lively atmosphere - but it doesn't hurt.
"I have always respected the Arsenal fans and always will. They love their club so I understand their feelings.
"Players, staff, managers and even directors come and go, but fans will always stick with their team.
"So I am looking forward to playing at the Emirates again. I have good memories there.
"And it will be good to see my old colleagues, staff and friends again."
