Manchester United striker Louis Saha admits his injury problems have left him short of confidence.

In an interview with Setanta's Friday Football Show, Saha revealed: "I won't say that [I'm mentally stronger now].

"I said that before when I had a few [injuries] but I've had so many and they've kept you out every time so it's always hard.

"I have to accept I won't be as strong as before. That's a difficult thing, I would say. It's changed but I won't say I'll be as confident as I used to be on my fitness."

When asked if he feared for his career last season, he replied: "I would say 'yes' obviously but I would say it in a different way.

"I was more scared about not playing for United any more. It was why I was really down because I didn't achieve anything as I wanted really.

"I was really scared about that."
