Dutchman Robin van Persie voted as Footballer of the Year 2012

Dutchman Robin van Persie has been voted Footballer of the Year 2012 by the Football Writers' Association.
Van Persie, 28, topped the poll of journalists with Wayne Rooney in second place and his Old Trafford team-mate Paul Scholes third and Fulham's Clint Dempsey who’s at fourth place.
Van Persie's 34 goals in all competitions have helped Arsenal to be into the top four teams of the Premier League.
Van Persie will collect the prestigious FWA accolade, which has been running since 1948, at a gala dinner at the Lancaster London Hotel on May 3.
FWA chairman Steve Bates, chief football writer at The People, said: "Robin was the overwhelming choice of our members this season and deservedly so after a magnificent campaign for Arsenal.
"The quality of his goals, attacking movement and consistency in a turbulent season for The Gunners has been eye-catching.
"The considerable size of his majority in the votes cast by our members reflected the general view that he has been the season's most outstanding individual performer.''
