Abou Diaby has vowed to regain his top form when he returns to full fitness at Arsenal.

The France international has not played for the Gunners since suffering a knee injury in training and undergoing surgery back in March.

The 27-year-old’s Arsenal career has been blighted by injury, but after returning to the Gunners’ training base to step up his rehabilitation, the midfielder insisted he is determined to get back to his best.

“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 www.arsenal.com.

“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.”
