Holland coach Louis van Gaal doesn't believe Robin van Persie's thigh injury is serious.

Manchester United striker Van Persie was forced out of the 4-1 win in Hungary after suffering a knock to his thigh, with Klaas Jan Huntelaar brought on in his place, but the Oranje boss insisted he was merely erring on the side of caution.

"We took off Robin for precautionary measures," Van Gaal said.

"It doesn't seem to be too serious, but you never know. We didn't want to take any risks."
