Bert van Marwijk brought no good news to Arsenal after the match: “The first diagnosis is a bad ankle injury. We are waiting for X-rays in hospital. It’s terrible for Robin and is not good for Holland or his club.”
Van Persie’s right ankle ligaments are ruptured but the medical staff of Dutch Football Association thinks that surgery will not be needed. Let’s hope it’s true.
Both Arsenal and Netherlands National team will miss Van Persie and will pray for fast recovery, he is important player to both teams. In 11 Premier League games Van Persie scored 7 goals and claims 7 assists. Arsenal’s front-line is likely to fall to Eduardo now that Van Persie is out.
