Chadwell Chatter - Alex Song

Hello everyone,

I was very happy to be back on the pitch against Crystal Palace on Wednesday because it has been six months since I last played.

Wednesday was my first game back and I got 60 minutes, which was good. We've worked very hard, so it's very good to come back to the pitch.

I have to say thank you to the medical staff because they have done a great job. I was at Barcelona and Arsenal and the staff here are one of the best in the way they work.

I am very happy with the way they've done everything with me and now I'm looking forward to coming back.

I don't want to rush, which is why we've taken the time to come back step-by-step. On Wednesday I played 60 minutes, that's one step, and now I have a couple of weeks to try and build my fitness.

I know it won't be easy because I've been out for a long time, but I need to come back to the game so I'm looking forward to it.

On Wednesday we saw some players who needed some minutes, and some players like me who need to come back from injuries. That's what you need to build your fitness.

I was happy with the way I played and the way I moved. I need some time to come back, but the way it went on Wednesday made me happy.

I've been seeing the guys and they've been doing very well. I just wanted to come back to give my contribution, especially with some important games coming up.

We play Tottenham and Man Utd in the next few weeks and I have to be ready. I'll work very hard in the next few weeks to be ready for those games.

See you on the pitch soon!
