Chadwell Chatter - Mauro Zarate

Mauro Zarate on returning to fitness, the team's great start and more


I feel good again now after getting over the injury I had earlier in the season. The injury was an important one, touching the tendon, but now it has gone and I feel strong.

We couldn’t rush it, but I’m ready to play again. I’m strong and fast and available if I’m selected.

The international break is good for me because I can work on the training pitch more than normal to be perfect – at 100 per cent for the next match.

I’m pleased to have scored two goals this season, and now I’m fit again I want to play more, to score goals and do well for the team. That is my job.

Scoring on the first day of the season at the Emirates Stadium against Arsenal was a fantastic feeling, but I want to score more goals!

All the team is doing well and we’re high up the league table. I think we could have won the last match against Sunderland, but they defended well.

It was a good point for us really after coming back, and now we have a really difficult match against Crystal Palace next. We will have to be at our best to take the points there.

I’ve got good memories there – I scored on my West Ham debut at Selhurst Park last year – and I hope for another goal this time.
