Former Arsenal and Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has revealed he believes former boss Arsène Wenger is the best manager in the world. The Dutchman, like Alexis Sánchez, switched the Emirates for Old Trafford before going on to win a Premier League title under Sir Alex Ferguson.

However, despite his phenomenal season under Ferguson, van Persie holds Wenger as the best manager around and wishes success at Arsenal under the Frenchman’s reign.

“Arsène is just the best manager in the world,” the Feyenoord striker revealed, as quoted by the Mirror.

“This is why I want him to be successful with Arsenal. He deserves it. I owe everything to Arsène Wenger. He has been crucial for me in my development as a player and as a person.”

“I only have warm memories. I enjoyed every day, every minute I worked, trained and played for Arsène.”

Of course, the apparent snub of Sir Alex Ferguson could be due to the fact the Scotsman retired back in 2013 and is no longer in football. However, van Persie and Wenger’s close bond still seems to be as strong as it once was, despite the 34-year-old swapping the Gunners for the Red Devils.
