Sydney FC’s Simon Colosimo is on the mend and ready for action after a long lay-off.

The former Perth Glory captain endured a tough first season with the Sky Blues, suffering from the debilitating Osteitis Pubis but is confident his work over the off season will have him ready for the 2009/10 campaign.

"It's been a long, long break. It's felt like forever and so it's great to be back out there on the training park," he said.

"When I went in for the operation (in September) we were sitting pretty and looking at dates, thinking I could be back for the final couple of rounds and finals time. It didn't quite work out that way.

"I've done a lot of strength work before coming back. We're going to be a different outfit this year and so am I.”
