Arsenal Fans Rejoice As Van Persie Picks Up Thigh Injury

By on September 12, 2012

Van Persie Man Utd

Manchester United have been dealt an injury blow with the news that Robin van Persie picked up a knock while on international duty this week.

The 29-year-old was subbed at half-time during Hollands 4-1 World Cup qualifying win over Hungary on Tuesday night with a thigh injury.

The former Arsenal hitman has a poor injury record after seeing his first six years at the Emirates plagued by a series of injuries, so this latest set back will be a worry for Sir Alex Ferguson.

Dutch coach Louis van Gaal confirmed he took the striker off as he didn’t want to take any risks:

‘We took off Robin for precautionary measures. It doesn’t seem to be too serious, but you never know. We didn’t want to take any risks.’

Wayne Rooney is currently on the sidelines for at least another two weeks so Ferguson will be desperate for his summer signing to stay fit.

van Persie has made a superb start to life at Old Trafford, scoring four goals in just two starts following his summer move from Arsenal.

Many Gooners have taken to Twitter to poke fun at United fans and RVP for what they see as an inevitable injury, after having to put up with years of seeing the striker on the sidelines during his time in north London.

One Arsenal fan wrote “Van Persie is injured. If that can’t make you smile this morning I don’t know what will.“, while another Tweeted “LOOOL Van Persie’s injured yet again. Hopefully he’s out for months“.

Hopefully these are just the opinions of the minority as it’s never nice to hear football fans wanting a player, no matter what club they play for, to get injured.

    Sounds like it was more likely a dead leg. He might miss this weekend’s match, but I would imagine he should be fit by Saturday.

    The football season is long and hard with many matches in several competitions almost every player will pick up something during the season some more severe than others. Let just wish them well. As a reality check if RVP or any other opposition striker is out with injury how does it profit the Arsenal should we fail to do the job in our own matches? Let concentrate on winning our games lets focus!!!

    Never rejoice on the trials and tribulations of any body. For what goes around, surely comes around.We are the gunners with or without certain players and we pride in proving a point to some of them players who think their more ambitious than we are by beating them head on in a football game.It felt so good when Sahin in liverpool came to terms with that reality.

    Its a pity dt many pple are callin us dirty minded now. Personally, I wish him luck but, dis injury shows AFC’s tribulations and d patience wit which dey treated dis guy and moulded him into d striker he is now for 7yRs!!! Den for dis guy 2 turn arnd and tell d club who stood with him tru thick n thin and question d club’s ambitions shows ungratefulness and disloyalty @d highest! MUFC, dis is jst d beginning. We all know VP’s medical Records and gudluck with dat!!!

    Wish rvp quick recovery and a successful Manure career. We all gooners know how he can misbehave with his milk bones, how lethal his left foot can be, how disrespectful he is. That’s him n that’s what Man U fans should learn to begin accepting: moments of absolute master class in the pitch sandwiched by lengthy periods in the treatment desk.

    rvp rvp rvp, manu tis is the begining of what you spent 24 million for. Sir. Alex that is suppose to advice this guy to be patient and reward AFC for their patience throughout his career in the club went ahead to spent 24 million on him. RVP rest in peace.
