Ospina - I'm fully fit and settled in

David Ospina

David Ospina says he is fit and raring to go after overcoming a thigh injury sustained during the World Cup.

Ospina returned to the squad for Arsenal's 2-2 draw against Manchester City last weekend and was on the bench in Dortmund on Tuesday too.

The goalkeeper says is enjoying life in London and believes that having Spanish speakers at the club has helped him to settle.

"I feel very well and already settled," he told Arsenal.com. "At Arsenal you can really focus on your job since the club provides with anything you may need. Once settled, I am trying to make the most of this opportunity I’ve been given.

"London is great. It’s a beautiful enjoyable city in which there are many things to do. Besides, there are very good schools, which is a positive thing for my daughter. Living in London is a nice challenge for both my career and life.

"It helps a lot having Spanish-speaking team-mates. I remember that during my spell in Nice no one was able to speak Spanish with me. That made things a bit more difficult for me. I am glad I have Spanish-speaking footballers around.

"Physically I feel strong and one hundred per cent recovered. I was injured when I arrived to the team and that’s not an ideal situation. Injuries don’t help at all when you are trying to settle in, but thank God now I am in a good condition."
