Arsenal captain, Robin van Persie has thanked the fans for their continued support in what turned out to be a very trying season.

Arsenal fans have often been criticised for getting on the backs of players and the manager, however the captain believes they have been unbelievable.

‘The [travelling fans] have been unbelievable, the home fans as well, the last few months have been different class. Every single game – the Spurs game, the Milan game, you can name them all – unbelievable.” He said on the official club website

‘The away fans, they are always here, always singing, always cheering us up even when we are having a bad game, they are always behind us. A big thank you to all of them because they have been unbelievable.’

I know our home support can be a little self defeating at time, but our travelling fans have to be some of the best in the country.

You`ve only got to look back our 8-2 drubbing at the hands of Manchester United earlier in the season to see what great away fans we`ve got.
