Schalke 04 defender Abdul Rahman Baba reckons he is back to operating at 100% after making his first start in close to two years over the weekend.
The Ghanaian international played full throttle as the Blues beat fourth division side FC Schweinfurt 2-0 in the DFB-Pokal.
''I feel really good,'' said the Chelsea-owned full-back.
''I feel 100 percent and I've got my strength back.
''With more match practice, you can regain your strength quicker.''
He rejoined the Royal Blues on an 18-month loan deal from Chelsea during the January transfer window.
The 25 year old managed only one appearance last season, on the final day of the German Bundesliga for Schalke -when they beat Eintracht Frankfurt.
