CNN’s Piers Morgan is a die-hard Arsenal fan, which is why he has been devastated since former Arsenal star Robin Van Persie signed a contract to play with Manchester United. Morgan has tweeted about Van Persie switching from one rival to the other several times over the past month or so, and he has even decided to nickname Van Persie “Van Pursestrings.”
When Manchester United won the Premier League last month, Morgan tried to use a clever simile to describe his emotions. Naturally, it was not that funny.
This is like waiting to see a girl who cheated on you walk out with the men she cheated with – and be expected to cheer. #VanPursestrings

What was funny, however, was Van Persie’s response. On Friday, Morgan posted a couple pictures of the autographed photo Van Persie sent him that included a hand-written note.
