Two Liverpool stars follow Arsenal’s Van Persie to Serbia
The Daily Mail says Van Persie spent all of Wednesday afternoon having his damaged ankle ligaments tended by Serb housewife Mariana Kovacevic, using her unorthodox method of massaging placenta into the affected area.
Barclays Premier League players are rushing to Belgrade. Liverpool’s Glen Johnson is the latest to arrive for treatment, while his Anfield team-mate Fabio Aurelio is also due to see Mrs Kovacevic.
Van Persie, who was originally ruled out for three months after a tackle in Holland’s friendly against Italy last Saturday, still left with a limp.
A thigh muscle tear suffered by Liverpool winger Albert Riera has already improved after treatment here.
