Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby is hoping his injury woes are now over.

He has played a full part in pre-season and manager Arsene Wenger said earlier this week that “he is the first player who would be on the France teamsheet in midfield when fit”.

“That makes me feel confident – it is always nice to have the confidence of the manager,” Diaby told a webchat with Chinese fans hosted by Arsenal.qq.com.

“I’m fit now, I have been training since the beginning of pre-season and also did a rehabilitation session during my holidays – so now I feel great.

“I know that when I am fit, I can be good on the pitch. My main target this season is to be fit and if I am then everything will be good for me.”
