How exactly did an Arsenal captain go from a beloved hero to a defamed villain? That's exactly what happened to Robin Van Persie.
The former popular Arsenal captain doesn't seem to be getting much applause anymore and many have to wonder, what went wrong? Where was the rise and where was the fall? While Robin Van Persie hasn't called it quits or thrown in the towel, it's becoming very apparent that the career is near its end.
A lot of people have noticed that his abilities on the field just don't seem to be in sync like they used to and he's not nearly as skilled or well placed as he used to be. The captain has definitely had his highlights and his moments that will always remain in the hearts of hardcore fans but it may just be time to give it all up.
