Dutchman suffered hip problem at Loftus Road on Saturday.
Premier League leaders Manchester United are hopeful that key front man Robin van Persie will be fit enough to face Real Madrid in the Champions League next week, says the Daily Mail.
The Netherlands international suffered a bizarre hip injury during United’s 2-0 win in the top flight against relegation-strugglers Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on Saturday.
The forward fell into a TV camera pit behind the goal as he set up Brazil international Rafael da Silva for the Red Devils’ opening goal after 23 minutes and despite carrying on in obvious discomfort, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson eventually decided to take no risks with the club’s biggest game of the season fast approaching, and substituted van Persie four minutes before the break.
However, according to the club, the in-form striker has only suffered bruising to his hip and will be out of action for just a few more days, possibly even returning to training at some point this week.
Van Persie is unlikely to feature in United’s Premier League encounter with Norwich City at Old Trafford this Saturday just to be on the safe side, but the front man should be fit enough to start the second leg of the club’s Champions League last-16 home clash with Madrid a week on Tuesday.
