Arsene Wenger not ready to rush Van Persie

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has played just 3 matches in the last 5 months due to a thigh problem but now the striker is back to full fitness, it ought to give manager Arsene Wnger a huge lift ahead of the Gunners’ trip to AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League in midweek.

Yet Wenger is taking things at their own pace and is disinclined to rush the player into action. He says:

We will not rush Robin van Persie back, but the news is quite good. It is difficult to say, we go step by step, but he should come back into normal training very, very quickly now.Maybe I am being a little over-cautious in my statements, but I do not want to put any special pressure on him.

Van Persie’s return from injury comes at a time when Arsenal are smarting with the news that their Croatian international striker Robin van Persie shall be out for 9 months with a broken leg. Van Persie’s return does provide Arsenal with some relief.
