De Jong hopes to play again for AC Milan this season

Nigel De Jong feels he can play again for AC Milan this season.

The midfielder is recovering from an Achilles tendon injury.

"I am very happy, even if I have been out for nearly three months and there are still a couple to go, but there is progress and I am already walking again," he told Milan Channel.

"I need to get my muscles back in shape and that could take some time, but I am working hard to return to my previous levels.

"I am psychologically doing alright, as every time I come to the Milanello training camp, I think that I will return for the start of next season, hopefully even for the Champions League Final.

"We'll see if I manage it, although I honestly doubt I will be back on the field again this season."
