Striker hopes for change of fortune

Striker hopes for change of fortune

Dundee United striker Francisco Sandaza is hoping for much better this season after missing most of the previous campaign with a hernia problem.

The Spaniard was also ruled out of the Arabs' Scottish Cup final triumph over Ross County with a hamstring injury and therefore is wanting a vast change of fortune this time around.

"I have been training twice a day throughout the summer to make sure my fitness is right for coming back to pre-season," he told The Courier.

"Last year was the worst one of my life because of the injury problems I had, so I want to make sure I am 100% from now on.

"The club have a lot of very good strikers and did really well last season so it will be a fight to get into the team," he added.

"But I am ready to battle for my place and am looking forward to the new season starting so I can show everyone at Dundee United what I can do."
