What Robin Van Persie said about Mikel Arteta which is coming to a fulfilment.

Arsenal's all time goal scoring machine Robin Van Persie was recently on media discussing the situation with Arsenal. The former Arsenal forward took on to praise the newly appointed manager recalling the one year they spent together before he (Persie) left for Manchester United in 2012.

The Dutch hyped Mikel Arteta's ability to read things around him showing his professionalism.

"Played with him one year. Very good player and professional."

Robin Van Persie believes that Arsenal have found the new energy they have been missing since the departure of the legendary Arsene Wenger. In Arteta Arsenal are finding the style of play and their identity back.

"Luckily he realised straight away that he had to pass all the balls to me, that is what I call great player. First signs of a manager looks very promising."

With Arsenal bouncing back to winning ways after yesterday's victory over Newcastle United, Van Persie's words are taking shape and is just a matter of time that Arteta delivers for Arsenal in the same way he did by winning the FA Cup in his early managerial career at Arsenal.

Do you think the future for Arsenal is promising? Let me know in your comments.
