Robin Van Persie used to be captain of Piers Morgan's favorite team, Arsenal. He then signed a big deal with rival Manchester United. If for some reason you are tuned in to what Piers Morgan has to say on anything, you know this greatly displeased him.
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— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) April 28, 2013
He spent the better part of the season moaning and groaning about Van Persie's treachery and referred to him as Van Pursetrings. Camp Van Persie responded with the Morgan-related hashtag #tears4piers. Welcome to English shit-talking.
Then Van Persie and Manchester United won the Premier League and Van Persie sent an A+ gift to Morgan: an autographed picture of him kissing the trophy. With a nice note, too.
'Piersy my man, thanks for all the support! You made this day even more special! All the best, Van Pursestrings.' twitter.com/piersmorgan/st…— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) May 24, 2013
"Great to be a champ." Dagger.
