REVEALED! SECRET BEHIND VAN PERSIE STAYING INJURY FREE
Have you ever wondered why Robin Van Persie have been injury for close to two seasons?
For a notoriously injury-prone player, Van Persie missed almost an entire year of action in his final five years at Arsenal with a succession of knee and ankle problems.
But in the last two seasons, the Dutchman has stayed fit and healthy, allowing him to concentrate on what he does best - scoring goals.
So what is the secret?
It is understood that Van Persie's secret weapon in his fight to stay fit - an American-made elastic 'compression sleeve' product called the BodyHelix.
Van Persie started wearing the fabric on his thighs and calves during training and matches in February 2012 - and has not suffered an injury since despite playing back-to-back seasons of 48 club matches.
It is also understood that the 29-year-old also recommended the BodyHelix to strike partner Wayne Rooney after he suffered a gruesome gash to his thigh against Fulham back in August.
No wonder, Rooney returned to the United side within a month, despite the severity of the injury.
