The Dutchman will have a scan on the problem in the coming days, but the main outcome at the moment is that he will be unable to attend the awards ceremony for the Puskas prize. The striker has been nominated for the award for the best goal of the year for his flying header against Spain in the World Cup.
This possible new injury problem will add to the current issues that manager Louis van Gaal is having to deal with. United are currently on the same amount of points as they were under David Moyes at the same point in the last campaign, and have dropped out of the top three in the Premier League.
Van Persie is up against Stephanie Roche and James Rodriguez for the goalscoring award. Roche could become the first woman to win the prize if she comes first.
