Van Persie out for rest of season after Ferguson shouted at him

ROBIN Van Persie is expected to be out for at least nine months after some very loud shouting by Sir Alex Ferguson.

The new Manchester United star is convalescing in Holland where trained soothers are giving him a temple massage with spa water infused with essence of tulip.

Following United’s defeat to Everton, Van Persie was horrified  to discover that his new manager used very nasty swear words and spoke in an aggressive tone.

Minutes later, psychiatric nurses were called to the dressing room and Van Persie was removed in a wheel chair, sobbing uncontrollably as a wet patch spread rapidly over his groin.

The Dutch star said: “Such awful words. And he threw a cup. No one has ever spoken to me like that – not my mother, my teacher, my pastor and certainly not Mr Wenger.

“My parents were artists in Rotterdam, When I was 14 and some rough girls teased me about my bow legs I ran weeping to my mother. She said to ignore them, that I had been granted twinkle toes by the angels and I was destined to dance through life, free of all horridness. But now this beastly man…”

When he first joined Feyenoord, Van Persie’s mother issued him with a note, passed on in turn to Arsene Wenger, stating that he had ‘delicate bones, delicate ligaments, delicate hamstrings and especially, delicate nerves – he is my delicate little fairy artist boy’.

But the note never reached Old Trafford and may have been lost along with Van Persie’s cotton wool padded romper suit.

Sir Alex said: “I thought I was pretty mild – I just called him a ‘useless wee bucket of fuck’.

“He started crying so  I said to him, ‘harden up, it’s not as if you’re living in Glasgow’. Then he said, ‘what’s Glasgow?’ and so I told him and he started crying again.”

Your astrological week ahead, with Psychic Bob

Leo (23 JUL-22 AUG)
Of course you could form a double act from the old woman in Poltergeist and Syd Little’s ex-partner and call it ‘small medium and Large’. But why?

Virgo (23 AUG-22 SEP)
Only another eleven and a half months until you can volunteer at the university clearing call centre again and spend all day listening to teenagers with all the confidence and arrogance kicked out of them whilst pissing yourself laughing.

Libra (23 SEP-23 OCT)
Your job as a council estate GP is made a little easier this week when you get a rubber stamp of ‘Asthma and depression’ to mark every one of your patients’ records with.

Sagittarius (22 NOV-21 DEC)
Is this some sort of sick joke? It is? Oh, good, I like those.

Scorpio (24 OCT-21 NOV)
You have faith that the British legal system is the best in the world, especially after it found you not guilty of all those burglaries.

Capricorn (22 DEC-19 JAN)
You know that alcohol isn’t always the answer, unless the question is ‘Why is there no room in your fridge for a pint of milk?’

Aquarius (20 JAN-19 FEB)
This week you decide to retain the dignity you lost by writing the scripts for the meerkat adverts by fellating livestock in a Manila strip joint.

Pisces (20 FEB-20 MAR)
We don’t talk about love, we only want to get drunk. And that’s why we’re invited to more parties than you are, you dreadfully maudlin prick.

Aries (21 MAR-19 APR)
No word from your bank manager about your business loan for a store where women can exchange naked photos of themselves for cheap goods. Shame, as ‘Tit For Tat’ is a great name for a shop.

Taurus (20 APRIL – 20 MAY)
From the colour of your aura, your current regime of crystal healing and the feng shui of your living room, I know I can definitely afford that new conservatory.

Gemini (21 MAY-20 JUN)
Holding hands and cuddling does not necessarily lead to sex. It could be the prelude to a spectacular night of genital branding and scat worship.

Cancer (21 JUN-22 JUL)
That bloke with the pad and pen at your Edinburgh show may have been a reviewer or may have been another comedian stealing your gags but it was probably somebody doing a Sudoku rather than listen to your dreary one-hour piss-fest about hats.
