v. Persie Back Sooner Than Expected?
The intial news that van Persie had broken his foot scoring that all important goal against Man Utd made us all think Rob's season was all but over.
Well we might have been wrong.
Whilst Arsene Wenger doesn't want to rush anything and will make sure RvP is fully fit before returning him to the battle field, he also believes it could be a mere 5-7 weeks before the hitman returns.
"At the start we counted large," he said. "We thought 12 to 14 weeks and were hoping for a good surprise. Maybe eight to 10 weeks. It was three weeks on Friday so we are counting nine weeks more. But we hope it will be five, six or seven."
Even though Robin has already been out for a while, he still remains the top scorer for Arsenal this season in the league.
Get well soon dude.
