The story of the Dutch footballer who plays for Arsenal


From early rifts with coach Bert van Marwijk as a young player at Feyenoord, through to establishing himself as a world class talent after van Marwijk guided the great Oranje to the World Cup final in 2010, this is the fascinating story of a true sporting talent and one of the most naturally gifted football players of his generation. An intelligent playmaker and deadly striker, he brings creativity and intelligence to Arsenal's forward line and is the first name on the Netherlands team sheet. Signed by Arsene Wenger in the summer of 2004, van Persie quickly established himself as an integral part of Wenger's talented side, initially plying his trade on the left side of midfield. Playing alongside the likes of Thierry Henry, Robert Pires, and Patrick Vieira, he developed into one of the most creative, competitive, and intelligent players in the Premier League. Scoring what Wenger called the "goal of a lifetime" against Charlton in 2006, Van Persie was asked to lead the Arsenal line following Henry's departure in the summer of 2007, and it wasn't long before the Dutchman inherited Bergkamp's number 10 jersey and became an integral part of the next generation of Arsenal greats.
