Arsene: No van Persie gamble

Arsene: No van Persie gamble

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that he will not rush back Robin van Persie again after he came closer to a return from injury this week. The player picked up an injury against Tottenham after rushing back far too quickly.

Wenger decided to give the frustrated striker a complete break with a spell away from the club to help his recuperation.

"After last time we have decided not to push him and give him the needed time. It has all gone well," Wenger said.

"I don't want to set any timescale because that means, if he is not ready by that date, I might feel I have to push him."
