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?
