Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has been ruled out of Holland’s upcoming friendlies against Japan and Colombia due to persistent groin and toe injuries, according to Sky Sports News.

The Dutchman has been finding his best form of late scoring in each of his last four appearances for United, including the winner against Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.

However, he was withdrawn for the final 10 minutes of that game and it’s now been confirmed that he has been forced to withdraw from the Holland squad due to on-going concerns over groin and toe injuries.

The 30-year-old has previously struggled with the niggling injuries this season with the problems seeing him miss games against Liverpool, Norwich and more recently Real Sociedad.

Reports have claimed that van Persie has been taking pain-killers at times this season to get him through games and is concerned that David Moyes new training methods are leaving him open to more injuries having previously enjoyed two season being injury-free.

Obviously, RVP’s withdrawal from the Holland friendlies is good news for United as it means there is less chance he’ll aggravate the injuries any further but the on-going issues are sure to be a worry for the club.
