van Persie to stay true to Arsenal

Robin van Persie will remain with Arsenal despite speculation he was intending to walk out on the club. The skilful Dutchman admitted to Setanta Sports that he wasn't happy with the Gunners current position but is committing himself to the cause of improving the club and winning more trophies.

"My aim is not to fight for fourth place," he said.

"This is what we are involved in now and I accept that. But it is not my aim just to qualify for the Champions League. I want to win the Champions League and I believe we can.

"It is not just that I want to play in the FA Cup, I want to win it and that is what I have always said.

"I am not a guy who gives up easily. I have a contract until 2011 and I will respect that and, about my future, I can't say much more."
