Robin van Persie Injury Update: Was hat-trick hero badly hurt?
Manchester United manager David Moyes believes the Robin van Persie injury isn’t as serious as first thought, despite the Dutchman being carried off on a stretcher late on in the 3-0 win over Olympiakos on Wednesday.
The striker went down under a heavy challenge nursing his left leg, and there had been fears that the 30-year-old was set for a spell on the sidelines.
But Moyes, speaking after the game, said that Van Perise may have got off lucky,
Van Persie’s hat-trick saw United overcome a two goal first leg deficit against Olympiakos to progress to the quarter finals of the Champions league, and Moyes was quick to praise his star man,
“To score a hat-trick in the Champions League is a big thing,” said Moyes,
“There are only certain players in the world who are capable of it and Robin van Persie is one of them.”
