Udinese midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu says he is mentally stable ahead of the 2018-19 season.

The 27-year-old, who spent last season on loan with Turkish Super Lig side Bursaspor, had a successful knee surgery last week following an injury sustained while on pre-season with the Little Zebras.

In spite of the setback, the Ghanaian believes he will have a good campaign with the Serie A side when the league kicks off next month.

“The medical team advised that I correct the pain after complaining. It was successful and I must thank them for a good job done, I am grateful,” Badu was quoted as saying by Ghanasoccernet.

“It is every player's dream to have an injury free season and although I suffered a little setback, I'm mentally and physically ready for the upcoming season.

“Despite the surgery, I'll be ready on time and promise to give the upcoming season my best shot. I believe it will be one of the best,” he added.

Badu joined Udinese from former Ghana Premier League side Berekum Arsenal in 2010 after a loan spell at Asante Kotoko
