Usmanov raps Arsenal for selling Van Persie to Man Utd

Arsenal major shareholder Alisher Usmanov has rapped the board for selling their best players.

Arsenal sold Robin Van Persie to Manchester United last summer, and Usmanov insists that was an error on the part of the north London club.

He said: "This decision (selling Van Persie) was a mistake. If I am one of Wenger's players I would want to stay for the finish, but he explained Robin wanted to go to win trophies."
