“After all the physical niggles I had this season it is not obvious that I am going to be at the top of my form. I must take it gradually (getting back to full fitness) but I am optimistic, I think, that I will be ready for the beginning of the tournament.” “It is both tiring physically as well as psychologically because each time I thought I was getting back to being fully fit, I had a reverse. The coach has confidence in me, which is very pleasing and reassuring.” I really hope RVP’s injury concerns are behind him and hope he maintains his fitness through the tournament and through next season. Van Persie will not be play against Ukraine this Saturday as he will be rested and Van Basten has talked of getting him fit for the tournament.
“I do not want to take a risk with Robin. My wish is that he will be 100% fit on June 9.”Van Persie’s team take on Italy in their opening game and what a mouth watering game it promises to be! Let’s hope VP can show us what he is capable of… ’til tomorrow…]]>
