Okore - I Feel Like A Cliche

Okore - I Feel Like A Cliche

Defender Jores Okore has said that being back on the training pitch properly with the boys this pre season really makes him feel like a new signing.

Having joined us with plenty of potential last summer, the centre half unfortunately lasted only four games into our season before rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the game against Newcastle back in mid September and it's been a long old journey back to fitness for him, physically and mentally but the 21 year old is obviously a fighter and he'll hopefully no doubt make the most of his second attempt at the club when the season opens.

Speaking to the Official Site he explained.

'I am with the lads again now, I am really happy. I am enjoying every second of it. I feel like a new signing actually. You have to go out there and show yourself - show the lads and the manager what you can do, even if they do know a little bit about you from before. Overall, it's nice to be out there and I'm really glad to be back.'

Okore looks back during the interview to when he first sustained the interview and says how his main thought at the time was that he hoped it wasn't too serious and that it wouldn't keep him out for long, because he felt like he had adjusted to the team and was starting to show some form at the back with skipper Ron Vlaar, so it must have been gutting when the MRI was done and the ACL known about as it ended his season - although in the final weeks he did return to training only.

Clearly he's determined to make up for lost time now, and he thanks everyone at the club for helping him through it and he's now looking to his chance to really impress in this division and repay that support by turning it on for us on the pitch.

Welcome back Jores!

If he turns out as good as Gaël Clichy I won't complain.
