Van Persie wants Echteld to supervise his rehabilitation

The Gunner intends to take control of his rehabilitation during the World Cup in South Africa by taking his personal physio Leo Echteld, with him to the Mundial.

The likes of Dirk Kuyt, Wesley Sneijder, and Arjen Robben currently employ the services of the physio who is not part of Holland's contigent (Holland are not planning to take the physio with them) to South Africa.

The 27-year-old striker who has just returned from a five month injury after rupturing his knee ligaments while on national duty for his country said: "More than 10 players in the world Cup squad use him and want him there," he posited.
"But the Federation wants to follow a different path," Rvp maintained.

Van Persie's team mate Andrey Arshavin earlier complained about a similar incident, I hope the Federation gives the player(s) the opportunity to do what they think is best for their overall development.
