LUFC Somma ready to prove himself

LUFC Somma ready to prove himself

Leeds United striker Davide Somma says he is ready to prove himself at the club and he is ready to fight to gain a place in the side.

Somma is back in training after recovering from the latest setback following his long-term injury.

The South African international returned to the first team against Middlesbrough in December after a frustrating eighteen months on the sidelines. Somma had been sidelined with a cruciate knee ligament injury he sustained in a practice match at the start of pre-season in 2011.

Somma featured in five games over the next month and he scored in only his second appearance of the season against Nottingham Forest.

The striker is now hoping to force himself back into the Leeds reckoning with just five games remaining this season.

"I`m feeling really good again at the moment," Somma told the official website .

"It`s two weeks I have been back now. I`m hoping to fight to gain my spot again very soon. I want to be back and I want to score goals.

"I feel like I haven`t done anything here so far and I want to prove myself again."


Somma will be desperate to return to the side with his current deal at the club coming to an end this summer.

The 28-year-old signed for Leeds in the autumn of 2009 until the end of the season and after an impressive loan spell with League Two Lincoln City, where he scored nine times in fourteen appearances, he was rewarded with a new one-year deal.

Somma took his chance at the start of the next season, Leeds first back in the championship. The striker came off the bench with just fifteen minutes remaining of the game, in Leeds first home game of the season against Millwall and he netted twice to secure a 3-1 win.

After scoring seven goals in his first nine appearances, Somma found himself playing mainly from the substitute`s bench. He finished the season with 12 goals from 32 appearances, although only 12 of these were starts.

His form for Leeds also saw him earn a call-up for the South African national side and he scored in his second game against Kenya.

With Leeds having netted just eleven goals in their twelve championship games since the departure of leading goalscorer Luciano Becchio in January, Leeds could do with Somma to add options to the attack as they look to secure a win from their last five games to virtually secure the championship future.
