All season, Piers Morgan has been giving shit to Robin van Persie after his move from Arsenal to Manchester United. He took to calling him “Van Pursestrings”, implying that he was a mercenary. A few months after joining United, Van Persie has shown exactly why he left the club, with him winning the Premier League for the first time and Golden Boot again.
Piers took to Twitter to explain how Van Persie has responded.
“I just received a package from Manchester United press office. ‘Robin wanted you to have to this.’ The package contained a double sided framed photograph. Of Van Pursestrings kissing the Premier League trophy. After all the grief I’ve given Van Pursestrings, he’s allowed a whack back. I’ll just have to take it on the chins.”
