Manchester United midfielder Davide Petrucci says he'll be stronger for his injury woes.
The former AS Roma starlet suffered a serious knee injury early in his United career, but is now fully fit and preparing for a season long loan with Royal Antwerp.
Petrucci told manutd.com: "I’ve had a few injuries in the past and, if it doesn’t kill you, it can only make you stronger. That’s what I think. That is why, every time I have an injury, I want to react even more to do even better. So, this season, I came and was very focused. I’m still very focused for the season. I did feel I played well in the friendly games and want to play regularly and keep doing well.
"You need to believe all the time – otherwise there is no point to play football, you know. If you don’t believe in yourself, it is better not to play. I hope I can come back to United and play for the first team."
