One has to wonder how it is possible to gain 4kg of muscle in half a year, without additional weight lifting. If true this seems more than a little bit dodgy to me. What is Man United doing that Arsenal is not? Or alternatively what has van Persie started doing?
Van Persie also claimed during a interview before the recent Italy friendly, that his recovery
was super fast. And that he could easily play three games a week.
When it comes to doping, recovery is one of the key benefits. So for him to emphasize on that, and say it in such a way that it sounded like this was something new for him, made me frown a bit.
Also united have Scholes and Giggs at what age now? 38 or 39? I'm sure they are model pro's, yadda yadda. But to still have a important role at the best club in England, in a league that prides itself on being the most physical and fast paced in the world. It reeks of "Milan Lab" to me.
