Robbed Of van Persie
Arsene Wenger has admitted Arsenal will be without the services of Robin van Persie for at least 6 weeks.
van Persie broke a bone in his foot scoring the equaliser against Man Utd at the Grove on Sunday, and the gaffer says the injury is worse than first thought.
'We have lost Robin van Persie for a while, how long, I don't really know. It will be six weeks at least, if not more.' Said Le Boss
'It is a big blow because Robin has been on fire. He has had a great season until now. What is really terrible for me is that I did not want to use him at all.'
'But we were 1-0 behind and I decided to put him on. However he got injured and you can never predict that.'
The loss of RvP is a massive one, but a loss that could present the opportunity to one or more of our players to establish themselves in the first team.
I susspect that if you gave Robin the chance to turn back time and avoid injury but not score the goal, he's take the broken bone everytime.
Well done Rob & get well soon!
