Robin Van Persie Stops Loving Kids and Wife Upon Transferring to United

Alright, I'll be the first to admit that headline is probably not accurate. However, it's definitely amusing that Robin Van Persie updated his Twitter bio after completed his transfer to Manchester United and deleted the part about being a "proud dad of two amazing kids with my beautiful wife".

This is why some coaches don't let their players get on Twitter, though admittedly this is hardly the worst offense ever committed by an athlete on a social media platform. Check out what RVP did after the jump.

Here's the tweet that alerted us to this amusing moment:

Here's the bio change, before and after.

This is of course nothing and I seriously doubt that RVP loves his wife and kids any less now that he did as an Arsenal player, but I suppose this is a good lesson about what happens with my make changes for your Twitter bio and people like me find it and get to have a little fun with it.
