Robin Looks Forward To Rocking

Robin Looks Forward To Rocking

Robin van Persie is already looking forward to next season after missing 23 games through injury.

The deadly Dutchman broke a bone in his foot scoring a vital equaliser in a thrilling victory at home to Man Utd in January and hasn't kicked a ball in anger since.

However RvP is due off the treatment table at the end of May and is already raring to go.

'We have been very unlucky this season, personally I do not think it was down to our quality, I am sure that if we keep on playing the way that the boss thinks, the way Arsenal thinks, the way most of the players think, we will be successful. '

'Maybe next year, and certainly within two years, as long as we all stay together.'

Robin also spoke of his frustration of his injury.

'For the first two weeks all I could do was sit at home. That moment was very hard for me,' the Dutchman said.

'I was watching lots of football, but there I was, not even able to go to my own kitchen to get a drink. Everything had to be done for me. I had a lot of time to think about things such as how I see Arsenal, how Arsenal sees me, how I can improve.'

'Those things you can really think about, but when you live day to day there is no time to stop and think about it. You are too tired and also in football it is always 'the next game, the next game, this game has gone, look at the next one' - and suddenly I did not have that for three or four months.'
