I do not want to give the wrong impression to people by making an appeal.

I acknowledge that my actions were not acceptable on the football pitch.

We have reached an agreement with another club and intend to switch clubs this summer. All of Borussia Dortmund’s demands will be met.

We await the written reasons tomorrow [Thursday] before making any further comment.

I think they’ve bitten Suarez back. It’s the worst possible punishment you can give him.

It’s like being a kid in a sweet shop. This [playing football] is having fun, enjoying myself. That’s what I am doing, I’m just having fun.
Robin van Persie
On and off the pitch, everyone [at Manchester United] has been helpful. I have settled in well.

I think every day tells me that I made the right move. It’s nothing bad about Arsenal. No player is bigger than the club, Arsenal will always challenge for trophies and be up there. It was just that after eight years I was ready to move on and try something else.
Robin van Persie
When I extended my deal a couple of years ago at Arsenal, I felt that was the right move for me - to stay and play because I wasn’t finished there. Now, since last summer, I wanted to go for a big challenge, and this was the biggest challenge for me.
Robin van Persie
I do feel that this is exactly the right time to be here. I don’t think it would have been better to come here earlier. Everything has gone this way for a reason.
Robin van Persie
I found that challenge at Manchester United. I do feel that I am surrounded by champions.
Robin van Persie
Arsenal are a great club and I always had a good feeling but after eight years, sometimes you feel that you need a new challenge.
