He still has too much burden of a kuitblessure that he suffered in the final league game at PEC Zwolle, where he twice scored (3-4). The employability of Nicolai Jørgensen is tomorrow tested. He returned with a hip injury of the Danish national team.
“It’s a lot better with Robin, but he has not yet been able to test it,’ says coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst. “Ultimately, it is worse than we thought after the match in Zwolle.’
Cup final is not in danger
The coach is not worried about the fitness of robin Van Persie in the run-up to the cup final with AZ on april 22. The severity of the injury is certainly not of such a nature that the focus is completely must to lie for the attacker.
“We wanted him fit for the Excelsior, that is not successful, and that means that we have it now just fit want to get for next week. We think here not yet final. A final is a final, but the competition is also important. We are now in fourth and want to fourth stay. Before that, we would all win.’
If Jørgensen’s race on Sunday, jeugdexponent Dylan Vente, again substitute in the striker, as was Van Bronckhorst know. Sam Larsson is ready for ninety minutes after a hamstring injury. He already played a half in the benefietwedstrijd against ADO Den Haag (4-0), in which he scored.
