24 December 2010 11:42
Stoke City goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen says he is fully fit and ready to fight for a first team place.Sorensen lost his place to Asmir Begovic earlier this season and has not featured since the home defeat to Manchester United in October. [LNB]The 34-year-old Dane has suffered from a persistent elbow injury but insists he is now fit and raring to go. [LNB]"The main thing for me now is that I'm fit, the next thing is to get back in the team," he told BBC Radio Stoke. [LNB]Sorensen suffered the injury last season and it came close to ruling him out of his country's World Cup campaign. [LNB]The problem continued through the autumn and he lost his place to Begovic, 23 for the Potter's 1-0 win at Everton. [LNB]The Bosnian international has now kept goal in Stoke's last eight Premier League games. [LNB]Sorensen added: "I'm obviously not happy being on the bench, I want to be playing. [LNB]"But the only thing that will get you there is getting your head down, I'm a true professional and I'm training my socks off. [LNB]"Hopefully there'll be a chance around the corner, I haven't lost my place because of bad form so I'll just get back on the horse and get going."
