Dutch FA scoff at Arsenal compo claims for Van Persie

The Dutch FA are ready to fight Arsenal all the way over their compensation demands for the injury suffered by Robin van Persie.

Arsenal's lawyers are confident that they can claim for compensation for the cost to the club of the ankle injury, which will keep Van Persie out for five months.

But Dutch FA president Henk Kesler, a lawyer, claims that the club will already have insurance to cover the cost of his wages under FIFA rules.

"Before Arsenal were shouting their mouths off in public, they should have studied the FIFA rules," said Kesler.

"If you read the rules, then you know that players are always insured by their clubs. They are also insured by the club when they are on their travels with the national team. Let Arsenal come to us with their legal claim and we will fight it."
