Van Persie Returns to Training

Manchester United have been boosted by Robin van Persie’s return to training, with the striker having not featured for the club since February’s 2-1 win over Swansea City.

The Netherlands international played the entirety of that victory, but left the Liberty Stadium in a protective boot and has missed every game since as United moved above rivals Manchester City into third place.

Louis van Gaal suggested last week that his compatriot would not be fit for Sunday’s derby against the reigning champions, although Van Persie is said to be targeting a place against City.

United have won all but one game since Van Persie’s injury, with Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata helping to provide the attacking threat in the Dutchman’s absence.
