Over the weekend we saw video of Robin van Persie celebrating a goal with something that looked like a Nazi salute.
It has been brought to my attention of some ridiculous allegations concerning my celebration of one of my goals yesterday…It is totally ludicrous to suggest that my action of brushing my shoulder and pointing to my fans could be construed as anything else but of a showing of joy and celebration…To suggest this meant anything to the contrary is insulting and absolutely absurd as nothing else came into my mind.
But while van Persie has brushed his shoulder in the past after scoring goals, this version looked nothing like the previous incarnations, such as the celebration seen in this video from 2009.
So it would appear that we can just write this off as just a poorly executed version of a more common move.
