Parma midfielder McDonald Mariga is committed to leaving his injury troubles in the past, by returning to good form at the club.

The Kenyan international was signed on a free transfer by the side from Emilia-Romagna, having been training at the club beforehand in a bid to prove his fitness.

During his time at Inter, the 27-year-old’s progress was hampered by a mixture of injury problems and poor form, but is ready to forget that.

“Over the past two years, yes, I’ve been very unlucky.”, Mariga told FC InterNews. “Unfortunately I was not 100 per cent of this form and I am very sorry, but it can happen. Now I have returned to Parma, and I hope that I have left behind all the injuries and can return to the real Mariga, in top form.”

Parma signed Mariga for a fourth time, on an initial one-year contract as he was available on a free transfer having been released by Inter at the end of last season.

Mariga has been training with the team and passed the relevant medical check-ups before penning his deal.
