GunnerAFC 8 years ago Arsenal, England 47 1025 Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has been named the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year. The 28-year-old Holland international has scored 27 Barclays Premier League goals this season for the Gunners - his most fruitful campaign for the club - and was humbled to be recognised by his peers. 'If other people are saying it, it is special, but it is even more special if your opponents are saying it,' he said. 'It is very special because you are playing against them week in week out and every single player does everything to win and in the end if they make up their minds that I'm the best player it is a big honour.' Van Persie may have picked up the top individual honour but he was quick to point out it would not have been possible without his Arsenal team-mates. Congratulations Robin! You deserved it!
