Here's Why Robin Van Persie Was Better Off Leaving Arsenal

Van Persie Free Kick

Here's 44 reasons why Robin Van Persie was better off leaving Arsenal and the Emirates. And it's all down to medals - and glory.

As the Sun has reported, players who have left Arsenal in the last 7 years have gone on to win a total of 44 medals in top competitions. During this period, Arsenal have won nothing.

Arsenal may be the best run club in the Premier League (at least in terms of financial stability), but it doesn't look too hot when it comes to delivering trophies.

Here's the evidence:

Emmanuel Adebayor - 1 trophy since he left Arsenal

Sol Campbell - 1

Gael Clichy - 1

Ashley Cole - 7

Lassana Diarra - 3

Cesc Fabregas - 3

Mathieu Flamini - 1

Alexander Hleb - 4

Thierry Henry - 6

Sebastien Larsson - 1

Lauren - 1

Fran Merida - 1

Samir Nasri - 1

Jose Antonio Reyes - 5

Gilberto Silva - 2

Kolo Toure - 2

Patrick Viera - 4

And Arsenal fans wonder why their best players always seem to leave ?
