Ben Arfa raring to go

My hamstring is completely fine now and I feel happy that the injury has gone and I can return to full fitness. I am 100 per cent fit.

I'm happy that I have come back into the team slowly and gradually. The manager and the doctor have put in place a programme to ensure I return gradually rather than rush back and get further problems in the future.

I am happy with the work of the backroom staff and the manager because this was my first muscular injury and it was important that the healing ran its course.
