The Dutchman claims Arsenal’s flawed training methods and “amateur” staff are to blame for their injury problems, and insists that years of mishandling has destroyed van Persie’s body.
His comments come after Aaron Ramsey suffered his latest injury, tweaking his hamstring during the Gunners’ 4-1 win over Galatasaray in midweek.
The Welshman adds to Arsene Wenger’s already lengthy injury list, but Verheijen insists that bad luck doesn’t come into it, and claims it is down to the North London clubs poor handling of injuries.
He stated that players who pick up injuries every year develop ongoing problems that then can’t be remedied, and that players like Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, and Robin van Persie are all now structurally injured.
Verheijen didn’t pull any punches either, and took to Twtter to blast Arsenal and their methods.
“RVP is only 31 yrs but more & more starts to look like an old man on pitch because of all damage done to his body during his Arsenal period,” he tweeted.
“The same career threatening process takes place at Arsenal with Ramsey, Walcott, Wilkshire [sic] & [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain who are structurally injured.
“Players who are injured season after season develop all kind of weak links inside the body so a vicious injury cycle develops during career.”
