Coulibaly: I want to enjoy it

AFC Bournemouth attacker Mohamed Coulibaly is desperate to put his injury problems behind him.

Coulibaly had been targeting a return to first team football during the Christmas period, however last month he suffered a minor recurrence of his Achilles injury.

The Cherries summer signing from Swiss Super League side Grasshopper Club Zürich has struggled with injuries ever since he joined the Cherries during their pre-season training camp in July and went on to sign a two year contract.

He initially impressed in Eddie Howe's side and during his home debut as he was named as man of the match for his performance against nine time European champions Real Madrid.

Coulibaly started the new Championship campaign for AFC Bournemouth on the opening day of the season against Charlton, but was forced off injured after just 55 minutes.

He went on to make two further appearances against Watford and Doncaster Rovers, before he broke down again as a 81st minute substitute against Blackburn Rovers at the end of September and hasn't played since.

The Senegalese winger has been out to Rome for treatment on his troublesome Achilles and calf problems, whilst the Cherries backroom staff have worked on a new schedule to get him fit.

With the exciting prospect now edging closer to a return to the squad, he hopes to forget his first six months in England and impress during the second half of the season.

Coulibaly told the Daily Echo...

'...It is a really bad experience to come to your new club and then not being able to play. It was really difficult but now I just want to forget this and do my best for the second part of the season.

'I have seen a lot of the games and it was really hard for me to go to the stadium and watch the games when I couldn`t play.

"But I have to take the positives. I have seen the level and how the people play and I want to enjoy it...'

Could be too little too late. Like those before you the side has moved on. Yes we need a reliable goal scorer but it may NOT be you. The time is almost up on your contract. This has truly been a shame and an awful waste of dosh. So if you do get back you owe us large!

Yes he did sorry about that didn't wish to confuse. He still owes us , we have a a considerable amount of work to get him up and running and then we probably have only another season from him. Answer buy Defoe for 6 million!
