Abou Diaby: Vowing to come back stronger from injury

Diaby is working his way back to fitness after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury last March.

The injury was a major blow for Diaby as last season he started to reproduce some of his best performances for Arsenal after seeing his progress blighted by a series of injuries over the last couple of years.

The 27-year-old is determined to return to action at some point this season and he admits coping with his latest injury mentally was difficult.

"I'm always confident because I know my ability and I know that as soon as I'm fit I can play at a good level," Diaby told the club's official website. "I always keep those references in my mind and I work every day to reach that level.

"It was very frustrating because I did a lot of work to become fully fit last season and I wanted to play a full season.

"Unfortunately, two injuries kept me away from the pitch. Emotionally it wasn't good because you think in a bad way but I had the support of my friends, family and the people at the club and that gave me a lot of hope.

"I'm working back to my best level and beyond. I want to catch the train and bring something to the team. That's my objective."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
