Sir Alex confirms Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa fit to face Wigan

by Sam Peoples

Speaking at the pre-match press conference today, Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Robin van Persie will be fit for the game against Wigan on Saturday.

Robin van Persie was taken off at half time during Holland’s 4-1 victory over Hungary midweek in the international break after taking a knee to his thigh but has recovered in time.

It comes as a massive boost to Manchester United as Robin van Persie has fired in four goals in his last two starts and has been integral to the fantastic attacking football that we have played in the past two games.

With Wayne Rooney still sidelined, Robin van Persie has become the main man at Manchester United after his summer move from Arsenal and has given an instant return on his £24 million price tag.

Hopefully the Dutchman can continue his fine goalscoring form when Wigan visit Old Trafford tomorrow afternoon.

Sir Alex Ferguson also confirmed that Japanese play maker Shinji Kagawa has recovered from a back injury he sustained whilst training with his international team.

It means that Manchester United are at full strength for the game against Wigan apart from long term injuries Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, who still both remain sidelined.
