van Persie back in 2 weeks
March 19, 2010
Arsène Wenger has today confirmed Robin Van Persie is “doing very, very well”
Since having his ankle attacked by Italian thug, Giorgio Chiellini, Robin has spent much time in rehabilitation on his home soil.
Cesc was even quoted in recent weeks suggesting nobody at Arsenal has seen him since last year.
Fitness coach, Tony Colbert, has been in Holland this week to conduct fitness tests on RVP, the prognosis backed up by Wenger’s positive quotes.
“When he is ready to kick the ball again he will come back from his rehabilitation and it will still take three weeks.
If you add him coming back plus three weeks we will still be in May.”
Do the maths.
A fit, sharp and hungry Robin Van Persie could be just the impetus this team needs as they head towards the finishing line in both the Premiership and the Champions League.
Just to have him on the bench to give us 20, maybe 30 minutes, if needed, could make all the difference.
World-class players are not two a penny, as some pundits would have you believe.
RVP was in world-class form for us, scoring 8 goals in just 15 appearances this season, before being assaulted on a football field in Pescara, Italy.
The horse placenta magical cure bollocks that followed…was indeed just that.
