Arsenal star hopes to save himself from glue factory with unusual treatment

Robin Van Persie has revealed he will have horse placenta applied to his ankle injury in a bid to speed-up his recovery. The Arsenal striker damaged ankle ligaments while representing Holland at the weekend.

Van Persie said: “I am going to receive treatment from a female doctor. She is vague about her methods but I know she first massages you for a long time with placenta fluid. I’m going to give it a try. It can’t do any harm and if it helps it helps.”

The treatment was not Arsenal’s idea, but they have agreed to it.

He added: “I have been in contact with Arsenal’s chief physio about it. The club has allowed me to have this treatment done.”

Meanwhile, RVP is happy to try anything to help him get over his latest hurdle.

    I agree with the boot, van Persie is overreacting. He should harness his emotions and say neigh to this questionable treatment.
