Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood is ready to return to football.

Hill-Wood, 76, suffered a heart attack at the end of November, following a bout of pneumonia.

But the businessman, who has been chairman of the Gunners since 1982, has confirmed he has no intention of stepping down.

"I am really much better," he told the Daily Star.

"I am almost fit. I am walking about and although I have a few after effects, it is nothing serious. I'm looking to go to the Aston Villa match in a couple of weeks."
