Man Utd ace Van Persie admits injuries left him rock bottom

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie admits injury problems last season left him at rock bottom.

Van Persie's injuries restricted the Holland captain to a paltry 28 appearances.

Van Persie said: "Over the last few years I put down the best series of my career. I played 93 matches in the Premier League in a row. Most of them as a starter, some as sub. I never thought about injuries.

"But this season I had three, where I was out for at least a month every time. Sometimes I got despondent of it. It started with something small.

"I had a broken toe and because of that I started to walking different, which had consequences for the rest of my body."
