West Ham midfielder Pedro Obiang is working hard to be fit for the start of pre-season for the upcoming Premier League season.
The 25-year-old Spaniard injured a leg in a league defeat to Leicester in March.
He missed the remainder of the season after surgery but is raring to go as he steps up his recovery, after a short break with his family.
Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “I’m coming back to Rush Green to continue my fitness work in a few days because I have to work for to be ready for the fifth of July.
“I been on holiday with my family and some friends to Mykonos and Athens in Greece, Belgrade in Serbian and Montenegro, which was both interesting and relaxing, but now is the time to think about my work because I want to be ready to train and play.”
Obiang signed a four-year deal with the Hammers in 2015 and enjoyed his time at the club before suffering his injury blow.
He added: “I have many good memories of my time with West Ham. The last game in Upton Park, the atmosphere and everything was amazing, and of course the game in the FA Cup against Liverpool when Angelo Ogbonna scored the winner in the last minute.
“This last season, the best moments were when I scored my first goal and when I saw the videos of the supporters singing my song!”
