Diaby to start running 'in a few weeks'

Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby can see light at the end of the tunnel as he continues his comeback from a serious knee ligament injury.

The France international is likely to be out of action until Christmas after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in training in late March, the latest setback in a career blighted by injury.

However, the 27-year-old, who is currently undergoing physiotherapy at France's national team training centre at Clairefontaine, is confident he is on the road to recovery.

"I've got rid of my crutches. Now I have to walk," the former Auxerre player, who will stay at Clairefontaine until mid-July, told L'Equipe. "I'll start running again in a few weeks. I want to take my time to ensure everything is good."

Diaby, who is working back to fitness alongside Lille's Ryan Mendes and Ajaccio's Ricardo Faty, made only 11 Premier League appearances last season, and was sidelined for the final three months of 2012 before his comeback this year also ended in injury.
