Man Utd season could be over for Van Persie

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie's season could be over. Van has been ruled out for "around four to six weeks" with a sprained knee.

His hat-trick against Olympiacos had been viewed as a possible turning point in United's poor season, but he was later carried off on a stretcher with Friday's news meaning he may not play again until May.

He is almost certain to miss the Champions League last-eight tie with Bayern Munich, which he single-handedly set up.

A tweet from United read: "Following further investigation, Robin van Persie has a sprained knee, which will keep him out for around four to six weeks."
