The Dutch national team manager Louis van Gaal has said that the injury suffered by the Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is not serious at all. The 29-year-old is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world and he recently completed a £ 24 million move to Manchester United. He has already been in excellent form for his new club after being the key reason for the Red Devils winning the matches against Fulham and Southampton. However, there is a real danger of missing out on the match against Wigan during the weekend and also the match against Galatasaray in the Champions League.
Robin van Persie has been extremely important for the Dutch national team as well. Hence, Louis van Gaal has said that he is disappointed to lose the former Arsenal player as well. However, the injury is not as severe as initially feared. The Dutch national team has suffered a lot of injuries problems over the years in the form of players like Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie in crucial matches. Despite the injury problems, the Dutch managed to start the World Cup qualification campaign with two wins in the first two matches against Turkey and Hungary.
“We took off Robin for precautionary measures. It doesn’t seem to be too serious, but you never know. We didn’t want to take any risks. I have to highlight Jeremain Lens’ performance. He had an excellent game despite the fact he only got into the starting XI just before the match started. Immediately after Krul could not continue I could tell Stekelenburg he would goalkeeping. It’s about the experience,” said the manager after the match. The Dutch will be facing Andorra and Romania in the next World Cup qualifying matches that will begin in October.
