Watford keeper Almunia: Man Utd striker Van Persie lost confidence in Arsenal future
"I think Robin saw that Arsenal didn't sign players as good as he wanted them to be this summer," he told the London Evening Standard. "I know him well and he always wanted to win, he had been at Arsenal for a long time without winning and that was another main factor.
"But life goes on. People choose their way in life and Robin chose to leave. I wish him luck because he deserves everything good that happens to him."
