Dutch FA refuse to respond to Arsenal compo demand

The Dutch FA are refusing to respond to Arsenal's plans of seeking compensation over Robin van Persie's ankle injury.

The forward suffered ankle ligament damage during Holland's friendly against Italy on November 14 and is not expected to return to action until April next year.

The KNVB said in a statement: "We have taken note of Mr Wenger's statements in the media. At the moment KNVB have no comments on this matter.

"If and when Arsenal will take steps, the issue will be dealt with by specialists of both Arsenal and KNVB."
