Abou Diaby has issued a statement declaring he will get back to his best once he recovers from injury. The French midfielder suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury in March.
Diaby has been plagued by injuries over the past four years which has stunted his development at Arsenal but he showed glimpses of his best form when he was available last season.
The 27-year old has admitted life has been tough with his injury problems but he does expect to return better.
“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. 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.”
