Van Persie stands by his decision to leave Arsenal for United
- Van Persie controversially left Arsenal for United.
- The striker led the Red Devils to the Premier League title in his first season.
- And the Dutchman insists he made the right choice back in the summer of 2012.
Robin van Persie was Arsenal's captain at the time of his controversial move to United in the summer of 2012.
The Dutchman, who went on to win the Premier League title during his first season at Old Trafford, insists he has no regrets about leaving London.
Reflecting to Goal about the abuse from Arsenal fans, the ex-striker said: "You know that once you make a move like that, stuff like that happens. You have to take it on the chin and move on.
"You have to live with the consequences, you have to live with the choices you make and deal with them as a man. Don't take it all too personally and don't take yourself too seriously. This is my life, this is what I did and some people are happy with it, some people are not. That's life.
"The first game against Arsenal was mentally tough. It was at home in Manchester and I scored after three minutes. That was a very mixed feeling at that time because it was so soon. Afterwards, I played six or seven times [against Arsenal], but that's [what happens] if you make a move like that."
