Van Persie reveals fitness struggles


Bookmark and Share

Monday 09 June 2014

Dutch striker Robin Van Persie has revealed that despite playing more than 250 Premier League games he has been playing with pain for the past six years of his career, the Daily Mail is reporting.



The Manchester United front man has suffered an injury hit career since arriving in the Premier League with Arsenal back in 2004, but has gone on to still score nearly140 goals during his ten years in England.


Yet the striker has revealed that he cant remember a time where he hasn’t played through the pain barrier in recent years.


Van Persie said: “I've been playing in pain for the last five or six years; every single game.


“I can't really think of one game where I didn't have a niggle or pain somewhere. I'm used to that. I know, together with the team and with the medical staff, how to deal with that.”


The Dutchman has had groin complaints over the past few days but has declared that the ‘niggle’ can not even be described as an injury.


Van Persie was withdrawn during the Netherlands 2-0 win against Wales as a precaution as he searches for full fitness after a six week lay off towards the end of the season with a knee injury.


The former Feyenoord man has been a main figure during Louis Van Gaal’s time as Holland boss and he will hope he can fire his country to world Cup success before he takes over as his club manager at Manchester United next season.
