The Arsenal striker only made 13 Premier League starts this season due to injury and paid a heavy price for returning to action too early last season.

Van persie has said that Holland manager Van Basten does not want this to happen just before the Euros.

Van persie had this to say.

“I am super fit,” he told the Sunday Mirror. “But coach Marco van Basten does not want to take any risks. I have been so unlucky this season with injuries.”

“I have made a couple of comebacks too early. I paid the penalty for that and we both don’t want it to go wrong again.”

“But I can sprint, I can shoot, I can do the lot. And I am bursting to produce some really good football in the Euros.”
