Robin van Persie will be respected when Manchester United visits Emirates Stadium says Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
The Dutchman has been an important player in United’s championship run following a £24-million move from Arsenal – currently at 24 goals to lead all players in the league.
There have been talks that the Gunners faithful will turn their backs on their former talisman in their coming clash in protest for RVP’s perceived betrayal.
However, Wenger believes his former star will still be well-received.
“We will respect the players that have played for us a long time as we always have done and treat them well before and after the game,” he said.
“As a champion or not as a champion it is exactly the same.
“What I want is for us to have a good game and to beat them, it doesn’t matter what kind of status they come with.”
