Arsenal striker Van Persie denies attacking England players

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie denies criticising England players' off-the-field behaviour.

Van Persie was quoted last week criticising the partying lifestyle of England's best players.

The 27-year-old has, however, denied making the comments via his Twitter page on Sunday evening.

"Want to clear up some things. I supposed to have made comments about the lifestyle of English players. Words have been taken out of context," he wrote.

"Only thing I meant to say is if u look after urself u can enjoy a longer career. Never mentioned english players in particular.

"Who am I to judge. Think the prem league is amazing and so are the boys playing in it!"
