Twitter: Robin van Persie returns to Manchester United training

Robin van Persie has given Manchester United another huge lift this week – as the Dutchman returned to first-team training back in Manchester. Louis van Gaal has confirmed that the chances are slim regarding Robin playing in United’s Premier League opener against Swansea, but its great to see him back in training.

Louis van Gaal & Robin van Persie led Holland to a World Cup third placed finish, and with Robin’s horrific injury record, Van Gaal did correct in giving his international captain extra time off.

It’d also be a smart move to let him sit out the opening few weeks of the Premier League season, to help him avoid picking up another little injury and avoid the risk of suffering from burnout.
