Robin van Persie says his eye is fine

Former Arsenal and Man United striker Robin van Persie dropped a hint he could return to the Premier League, but conceded his children will have a "big say".

Fenerbahce striker Robin van Persie says his eye is fine after a clash on Sunday.

“I would like to thank you all for your prayers and well wishes after my injury from last night’s game. Also a big thank you to all the medical staff who looked after me,” he wrote in a statement on his Twitter account.

“I have a little tear in my eyelid and after tests in the hospital this morning I can say that my eye itself is undamaged, so all good! These things happen in football. Nevertheless I am very happy with the team result and win. Now focusing on the next game, the derby.”
