AC Milan winger Urby Emanuelson is hoping to kick-off the new season with a bang as he looks towards a successful campaign filled with regular first team action.
The 25-year-old Netherlands international arrived at San Siro in January from Ajax and made just two starts in Serie A.
However, following an encouraging pre-season Emanuelson is ready to take the bull by the horns.
"It will be something new to start a full season with Milan as I arrived in the winter, so it will be good to start from the beginning," he told Milan Channel.
"I played in the summer friendlies and I am feeling good. I want to give the best for the team.
"I showed what I am capable of during pre-season and I want to continue doing well."
The champions begin the defence of their Serie A title on August 27.
