Mouthy Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan has revealed he today received a signed photograph from Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie – the man he calls ‘Van Pursestrings’.
The double-sided framed photo was sent in a package from United’s press office, which was accompanied by the note: “Robin wanted you to have to this.”
Van Persie had signed both sides of a photograph of him kissing the Premier League trophy.
The front reads: “Piersy my man, thanks for all the support! You made this day even more special! All the best, Van Pursestrings.”
The reverse says: “Great to be a champ.. so many #Tears4Piersy”
Morgan has already found a home for his gift:
I will of course afford Van Pursestrings’ gift the respect it deserves. And use it as my loo doorstop in Beverly Hills… @persie_official
