Toni desperate to return

08 October 2009 07:54
Italian hitman Luca Toni has revealed his anger at his continued absence from first-team action. The 32-year-old suffered an Achilles injury in the summer but has remained in the stands despite returning to full fitness. Not only is he not playing but Ivica Olic and Mario Gomez are filling up the attacking spots on the bench. With the club in eighth place and goalless in their last three matches, Toni's outburst will put pressure on manager Louis van Gaal to recall the former Fiorentina man. "All I want to do is get on the pitch and show people that I am still here," he insisted. "I think that the anger I am feeling about this unsatisfactory situation can help me."
