Van Persie tells fans to trust in Arsenal bosses

ARSENAL striker Robin van Persie has urged disgruntled supporters to keep faith with the Gunners hierarchy.<br /><br />No trophies in four years and a lack of funds for new signings has got some fans worried for the future.<br /><br />Chief executive Ivan Gazidis insists the club can be successful by living within its means, rather than accepting a short-term cash injection. And Van Persie, who this week signed a new five-year, &pound;80,000 a week deal, believes success will come eventually.<br /><br />&ldquo;There is ambition. I have spoken to both the boss and Ivan about it,&rdquo; Van Persie said. &ldquo;They have really worked to get a really good team for next year. I trust him and my message to everyone is: be patient, trust the team and the people above.&rdquo;<br /><br />Arsenal&rsquo;s board this week rejected a rights issue proposed by second largest shareholder Alisher Usmanov, which could have raised &pound;150m.
