Villa midfielder Delph feels stronger for overcoming serious injury

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph feels he's a stronger person for getting over his injury setbacks.

The midfielder endured a stop-start campaign in 2010-11 despite battling back from an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

"I think I'm due an injury-free season so hopefully this year will be the one," Delph told AVTV.

"It has been up and down for me since I have joined but I've stayed positive and I think I have got stronger mentally.

"Hopefully I can break through and do the proud and repay the chairman for the contract that he has given me in the past."
