Robin van Persie, the Arsenal captain, finished the 2011/12 Premier League campaign with 30 league goals, equaling former Gunners forward Thierry Henry’s club record for a single season. The 28-year-old forward has received the Golden Boot award for the first time in his career, along with £30,000 to be given to a charity of his choice.
This is his third accolade in recent weeks after he took both the PFA and Football Writers’ Player of the Year awards.
