Manchester United star Robin van Persie is set for scans to find the extent of the angle injury he picked up during the club’s 2-1 loss to Swansea on Saturday, according to reports from the Daily Star.
Van Persie played all 90 minutes at the Liberty Stadium despite being injured late in the game, as manager Louis van Gaal already used all three substitutes prior to his ankle problem.
The Dutchman was then pictured leaving the match on crutches, while also wearing a protective boot on his right foot.
This will come as a big blow to the Red Devils in their mission to finish amongst the top-four, with the 31-year-old currently the club’s top scorer with 10 goals in 24 league games.
The Red Devils medical team are set to conduct tests over the course of the next 24 hours in the hopes that the former Arsenal striker did not significantly damage his ankle ligaments.
However, it is expected the Van Persie will miss at least two weeks of action, meaning he will not feature Sunderland, Newcastle United, and their FA Cup quarter final clash against the Gunners next month.
