Arsenal Confirm 6 Week van Persie Absence

Arsenal Confirm 6 Week van Persie Absence

The Arsenal medical team have estimated that injured striker, Robin van Persie will be out for anything up to 6 weeks.

As reported over the weekend, the Dutch striker was stretchered off in a 0-0 international friendly between Holland and Italy, and the initial prognosis was not a good one, with suggestions that van Persie could be out from anything from 3 months to the rest of the season.

However, it's been made official on Arsenal.com that Robin should be back within 6 weeks .... just in time for the hectic Christmas schedule.

That's not too bad is it?

its bad enough,you also have to add a couple of weeks to get his match fitness back up,so it looks like he will be "back" for mid january

Factor in our legendary form in diagnostics (Rosicky will be "out for days not weeks") and I'd be quite happy if he was back for mid January. I'd sign for that now.

I am no expert, but ankle ligament damage is difficult to predict. I had ankle ligament damage and played through it although less. Because i kept playing injured it bothered me for 5-6 months. I would play on it and then miss a few of my weekly games and so on. I would say from my own and others experience that he would unlikey to be back in under a month. 3-4 weeks of doing nothing and a week or 2 of light training before playing properly

Ditto! I'd be thrilled if we see RvP back in January. :)

My reaction is unprintable here, I'll be thrown off the blog. This ruined my whole weekend.

Hey cheer up Jaelle, Eduardo scored a brace for Croatia! He WILL step up! I'm just hoping he can stay fit at least until Nick comes back so they could sort of rotate as they should be eased back into the team from injuries. No worries!

Persie will be missed in the big games - but luckily we have a couple other proven big game players who can step up (Nasri Man Utd, Cesc AC Milan, Arshavin Liverpool)

He is currently having placenta Juice rubbed into the injury to aid his recovery?! Hopefully it doesnt belong to Tom Huddlestone who surely must have given birth by now?
