Bolton’s Lee Chung-yong is eager to become a better player than he was prior to his serious leg injury last season.
The 24-year old South Korean winger missed almost the entire campaign for the Trotters but is fully fit and firing this term under Dougie Freedman and is keen to increase his output as he gains more consistency at the Reebok Stadium.
“It feels good to be back and I am really enjoying playing regular football,” he told the Bolton News.
“When I originally made my first-team return it took me some time to get up to the speed of the game.
“Now that there is no more pain in my leg from the injury, I feel that I can be getting better and better with every game I play.
“The more games I play the more confident I feel and I believe that I can continue to develop and reach higher levels than before my injury.”
Lee, who has scored five goals in 28 appearances this season, added: “Personally, it was a very hard time for me as I was unable to do what I love. But that time has gone and I am now just looking forward.
“I just try to forget about that whole injury.
“It was an unfortunate part of my career and it was a challenging period for me, but now I am determined to just concentrate on getting better and continuing to improve my game now that I am back fit and playing regularly.”
