Van Persie's vision loss fears allayed

Fenerbahce's team doctor, John Kunduracioglu, has allayed fears over  Robin van Persie's health, according to report.

The Dutch man suffered a grim eye injury during Fenerbahce's 3-1 victory over Akhisar Belediyespor on Sunday, with reports suggesting he will never see from the eye again.

However, fears of any permanent damage were quashed as images of the former Manchester United striker  emerged on Twitter showing his  arriving back to the stadium to watch the rest of the match after being treated.
"Van Persie received a blow to his eye, it was torn and bleeding," doctor, John Kunduracioglu, told Fanatik.

"After investigating, we sent him to an ophthalmologist at the hospital for further checks. We learned that nothing serious has happened, so the situation is good.

"We had to wait for an ambulance. If the injury had been more serious, the situation could have been worse."

Van Persie'sopened the scoring for his side in Turkey before sustaining the problem in an accidental clash with an opposition player in the first half.

The 33 year old had his  face covered in blood as he was carried off the field before being taken away from the Manisa 19 Mayis Stadium in an ambulance.
