Robin van Persie
30-Year-Old Forward Manchester United Premier
Van Persie is continuing his rehab from a knee injury in Holland, but he remains without a timetable for return, the club's official web site reports. "Robin is in Holland and improving but we always thought it would be four to six weeks," manager David Moyes said Friday. "We'll have a better assessment in the next week or so. Our medical team is heading out there to see him this week to get a better feel as to exactly where he is."
With only four fixtures remaining after this weekend, and United far out of the Champions League picture for next season, there seems to be little reason to try to rush van Persie back, especially in a World Cup year. If he doesn't keep progressing, he could be done for the season.
