Van Persie Shock!

Van Persie Shock!

It would appear that Manchester United will start the new season without the services of Robin van Persie.

Apparently our new manager, Louis van Gaal, has decreed that the Dutch striker will not be match fit enough to be considered for selection after his delayed return from World Cup duty with Holland.

Discussing the situation, van Gaal has remarked to the media,

"Robin will begin training on Monday, but he won`t play against Valencia, definitely not."

"And Robin won`t play in the Premier League, either, I think. When a player has been on holiday for three weeks they have to train. You need training sessions before you can play."

"I`m sorry, but players have to train and Robin needs a full training regime behind him before he can play again."

"People can criticise me for my decision, but I know what you have to do with players who have had three weeks holiday."

"Hopefully, Robin will get his fitness back very fast. But, at this moment, he won`t be playing."


Let`s all hope Louis van Gaal has gauged this one correctly!

Considering Robins injury record this is hardly shocking news. Like Ferdinand he has to be well managed to ensure we can get the most out of him every season. I'd sooner Louis gives Robin plenty of time to rest, recuperate and slowly regain match fitness to get back to his best than do a Moyes and rush him back just to see him injured for the rest of the season.

Considering out first few games and options i don't think it's a massive blow. Welbeck has been good during pre-season, Hernandez is always good for a goal and if worse comes to worse we go 4-3-3 with Rooney up top.
