Zeenews Sports Bureau

London: Setting aside any speculation over Robin van Persie’s future, Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger has said that the Dutch isn’t going anywhere.

"Robin is the leader of our club and I would just like to specify that he is not at the end of his contract,” he was quoted as saying by The Sun.

"He is under contract until 2013. So you do your job, focus on your job which he does very well and enjoy your games," he said

Manchester City’s manager Roberto Mancini had earlier praised the striker as one of the best in Europe giving fuel to speculations that the Italian was interested in bringing the leading goal scorer of the current EPL season at Etihad stadium.
