Man Utd Boss Van Gaal Admits Robin van Persie Out Of Manchester Derby

Robin van Persie 2

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has declared that Robin van Persie won’t be considered for the derby against Manchester City.

The former Arsenal striker had declared that he would be fit for the clash earlier in the week. But Van Gaal confirmed on Friday however that the Dutchman will miss Sunday’s derby.

When asked if van Persie was ready for action, van Gaal replied: “No. He’s back in training sessions so that is a plus.

“He trained two days with us and, today, he had recovery. So I think that is not enough to play. We have to wait and see always [on Smalling and Shaw]. I don’t think Shaw [will play] but I do think Smalling can play.”
