Abou Diaby: Aiming for surprise World Cup call-up for France

Abou Diaby: Aiming for surprise World Cup call-up for France

The 27-year-old Arsenal midfielder is now working on a strict rehabilitation programme and started running again last week.

Diaby has not played since March, but he has his sights set on a return to action in late February at the latest which could help his dreams of making Didier Deschamps' 23-man squad for Brazil.

"If I would be a surprise call-up for the 2014 World Cup squad, then why not?" Diaby told French daily sports newspaper L'Equipe.

"Playing in Brazil is obviously a dream, but first I would like to be back playing with my club no later than the end of February or early March.

"At the moment, I am in Clairefontaine working on my rehabilitation and I hope to touch the ball again very soon. Anyway, I will take my time getting back to full fitness."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
