How Barack Obama inspires Arsenal - Van Persie

Sunday, June 28, 2009

Arsenal star Robin van Persie has revealed that US President Barack Obama has become a significant figure in manager Arsène Wenger’s team talks.

The Gunners have been trophy less since their FA Cup triumph in 2005, but Wenger believes Obama's influence can provide the missing spark.

"Manager Arsène Wenger has introduced Obama's 'Yes we can' philosophy into the dressing room," van Persie told the News of the World.

"Nothing is impossible. No one would have said a few years ago that a black man could be US President. No one thinks that Arsenal, with our budget, can win trophies."

The Dutch forward admits he is fascinated by Obama's incredible success and is trying to copy the great man's demeanour.

He added: "I want to know more about the man.

"Obama was always calm. Whenever Presidential rival John McCain shouted and screamed, Obama remained in control.

"I try to do the same - if someone provokes me, I don't react. That's the best way."
