Robin van Persie was once an Arsenal legend. The Dutchman spent eight years with the Gunners, and became the club captain in 2011. In 2012, he switched allegiances and joined Manchester United, where he would go on to become a Premier League champion for the first time in his career.
Hard to argue that he made the wrong decision in leaving the Emirates Stadium, then.
Van Persie enjoyed great success under Sir Alex Ferguson during his time at Old Trafford, and during an interview with So Foot, the Netherlands' top scorer spoke openly about his decision to join Man Utd, the Ferguson effect and much more.

Why He Chose Man Utd
"But I had always had positive feelings towards Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United. If you look at this team at the time, you see players like Vidić, Ferdinand, Scholes, Giggs, Carrick... real winners, experienced players."
'The Bosses' of the Man Utd Team
"But when I joined this Manchester United team in 2012, I was not one of the most experienced, I did not have as many responsibilities, so I could focus on my game, my performances.
"In each team, there is a hierarchy. In Manchester it was clear, the bosses were Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Michael Carrick, Nemanja Vidić, Rio Ferdinand... These five were the bosses of the team.
Most Impressive Player?
"It's hard to answer, because most of them were impressive in their particular ways, in their own style.
"Vidić was a warrior, he put his head where normally it's scary to set foot. He did anything to win. Ferdinand was more "elegant", comfortable with the ball, strong in aerial play, good in long play.
"Giggs was the flamboyant player, always giving the impression of being in his comfort zone. And still in great shape at 39! He did yoga, lived football all the time. Impressive in its own way too.
"Wayne Rooney, impressive in his own style too, the guy was always fully committed, in impact, to put on pressure. Patrice Évra was impressive through his habit of speaking out, to provoke and instil confidence in the team."
Sitting on the fence a bit there, Robin.
Discipline Under Sir Alex Ferguson
"Coach Ferguson knew when to act, when for example, to emphasise discipline.
"In my first season, we were 15 points ahead in the league, and we took on Manchester City to win the title. If we won this match, we would have been 18 points ahead, but we lost.
'''I don't care who you are, how many trophies you've won so far. If you go out before the end of the season, you're out of the team and I'll sell you'."
