Van Persie ‘condition good’ after eye injury


Fenerbahce have played down fears that Robin van Persie has suffered a serious eye injury, after he was carried off the pitch bleeding on Sunday.

Netherlands striker Van Persie, 33, had scored the opening goal in the Turkish side’s 3-1 win against Akhisar before the first-half injury.

Television pictures showed blood coming through a bandage on his left eye.

“He received a blow to the eye and suffered a torn eyelid and bleeding,” club doctor Burak Kunduraciogl said.

“After the investigations we learned that nothing important happened. His condition is good.”

The former Arsenal and Manchester United forward joined Fenerbahce from the Old Trafford club in July 2015.
