Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has dismissed claims that hews the player identified by William Gallas as the troublemaker within the Arsenal dressing room.

Gallas branded his team-mates ”not brave enough” and accused an unnamed 25-year-old of undermining the squad with his behaviour both on and off the pitch.

However, 25-year-old Van Persie, who scored both goals in Arsenal’s impressive 2-1 win over Chelsea at the weekend, is confident he is not the target of Gallas’ criticism.

”Are you suggesting that William was talking about me?” Van Persie said.

”I don’t know that, because he never told me anything and I didn’t see my name in the papers, so I never felt that he was speaking about me. For me, there isn’t a problem.”

“There’s still a long way to go [in the title race] but I think we showed a big, big example [against Chelsea],” added Van Persie.

“I’m really happy about the team spirit because if you look at the last couple of weeks, it’s been difficult. We’ve been losing points and that was really frustrating. We stuck together and had a lot of self-belief.”
