Van Persie still hearts Wenger

Robin Van Persie was visibly gutted at the decision to remove Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from the action against Manchester United on Sunday, and has had to defend his reaction to various journalists who are like "ROBIN IS IT TRUE THAT YOU WANT TO KILL ARSENE WENGER?!!!"

We of course got first dibs on the song he wrote about the occasion, but in actual real football papers and websites the striker said:
"There is no problem, there is no conflict and there is no controversy,"
"I was not questioning his judgement. I know it's not my place to challenge what Arsene Wenger does.
"I was not having a go at the boss on Sunday - I was just sad to see Alex leave the pitch as he just gave the assist for our only goal."
I actually retract that last 'real football papers' because that was from the Sun.  The article is right in pointing out that you should never question Arsene Wenger because he's won trophies and stuff before.  Have you won trophies?  Didn't think so.  Also, he's the only one that truly knows the fitness of all the Arsenal players where as you just go on what is reported in the press:
"Alex had a calf injury. We did not know that but the boss did and brought Andrey Arshavin on."
See?  Oxlade-Chamberlain was injured, it's not because Wenger made a scarily bad decision or that the more I see him on TV the more I'm convinced his eyes are about to fire out and lava pour out of his skull.  Any day now.
