The Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby has said that he is extremely keen on proving his doubters wrong this season. The 26-year-old midfielder has suffered a number of injury problems during his long spell with Arsenal, which have limited his ability to maximise his importance with the team. Arsene Wenger has always had the faith in the 26 year old French midfielder, which has meant that he has remained at Arsenal all these years. Last season was one of the worst for the French midfielder after he missed almost the entire season. He made only three appearances in total throughout the last season.

Abou Diaby has said that there has been a lot of time when he has been extremely depressed with the amount of injuries he has suffered in his Arsenal career. However, he is hoping that the next few years will certainly be as he hopes – without any injuries. Diaby has been one of the impressive players for Arsenal in the fast few matches of the new Premier league season. Arsenal recently got their first win of the season against Liverpool. The 2-0 win and showed the best qualities of Abou Diaby, who was once likened to Patrick Viera.

“I had some very difficult moments, some days when I was depressed when it was tough, but even then, I always kept faith. I always told myself that some people were in a worse position than me. I am 26 and I am aware that I am at a key moment in my career, that is why it was so important that I came back this season. Now, I am careful about every detail, I leave nothing to chance. I am much more mature. I also had a full pre-season for the first time in ages,” said the 26 year old in a recent interview.
