Wenger – We will survive
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists the club will survive despite losing striker Robin van Persie to rivals Manchester United.

Wenger admits he can understand that suppporters are hurt at the loss of van Persie, but he is adamant they can still fulfil their ambitions this season.
“Time heals all things and of course at the moment people are hurt, which I understand, but what is important for us is to focus on the season in front of us,” admitted Wenger.
“We have lost world-class players before and we always survived.”
“Players have gone, life goes on and the football club is 125 years old. Other big players have left this club and we have always gone from season to season in a strong way
