Coventry midfielder Aron Gunnarsson insists he is raring to go after recharging his batteries during the summer.
The 20-year-old playmaker has had a busy close-season and was involved in World Cup qualifying action for his native Iceland.
"Pre-season isn't the best time to be a footballer because it's a lot of really hard, physical work, but it's needed to make sure you are ready to start the new season," he told the club's official website.
"It will be good to see the guys again and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in and getting on with it.
"We start and finish the season with home games and that's always good, so hopefully we can get the new season off to a good start."
