Manchester United and Netherlands centre-forward Robin van Persie has revealed that he has been struggling throuhg niggling and recurring injuries the past five or six years. The former Arsenal striker was constantly sidelined when playing for Wenger’s side, but managed to stay fit to make him one of the deadliest finishers in the Premier League and earn a big money move to Old Trafford.
“I can’t remember a game over the last five or six years where I haven’t felt some pain somewhere.
“The groin complaint I had you can’t even call an injury. I’ve had so many of those complaints.
“I’m no longer bothered by my groin and I have been able to give my all in the training sessions.
“I’m completely ready for the game against Spain.
“Spain are a good side, but so are we.”
The Dutchman struggled under David Moyes, Sir Alex Ferguson’s hand selected replacement, but will look forward to work under fellow countryman Louis van Gaal as the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager takes charge of the twenty time league winners.
