Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby admits he feared for his career as he recovered from an ankle injury last season.
Diaby said: "It was a very bad injury. I had three operations and there was a worry I might not come back. The doctor told me that was a possibility.
"Last season was very frustrating with eight or nine months spent on the sidelines. When you watch this team you want to be out there on the pitch and be a part of it."
