The Sunday Mirror reveals that Marco van Basten told his younger colleague Robin van Persie to remain with the Gunners for the future.

"Robin must not leave Arsenal. You can’t compare my situation at Ajax. The big difference is that Robin is ­already at a big club," Van basten said. Robin has been in London for six years. He can’t help it that ­Arsenal have won ­nothing in that time."

Van Basten has also expressed his feelings towards the English league football: "So much has changed in those six years in the Premier League. Chelsea have become a big club and have massive ­financial resources. Manchester City have ­become a big force and are richer than any other club. Manchester United and ­Liverpool have American owners. The amount of money which is flowing to these clubs for transfers is unbelievable."

"Arsenal operate differently. I admire that. [...] And I still think Arsenal are the most beautiful club in ­England. At Man City and Chelsea, they will never have that class and style. Arsenal have the most ­amazing stadium, they have a style of play, they have a ­beautiful shirt – in every way I consider Arsenal as the ­ultimate football club. [...] It is the club where Robin belongs," concluded Marco.
