Aaron Ramsey believes Arsenal fans have yet to see the best of him as he hopes to put his injury problems behind him.
The 21-year-old midfielder returns to training with the Gunners fresh from a mixed Olympic campaign with Team GB in which he forced his way into the side only to miss a crucial penalty in their quarter-final defeat.
That represented just the latest drama in a career that has already seen the high of being named Wales' youngest ever captain and the low of a career-threatening leg break.
But the former Cardiff man is now confident he can progress to enjoy an improved season at the Emirates Stadium.
"The best is yet to come from me," Ramsey told the Daily Star.
"I'm delighted with how it has gone - apart from my injury.
"I missed about ten months, which stalled my progress, but I still think there is a lot more to come from me.
"I'm working hard and wanting to learn more every day to become the best player I can possibly be.''
As a fellow long-term injury victim, Ramsey also sent a message of hope to Arsenal team-mate Jack Wilshere.
The England midfielder missed the whole of last term, Euro 2012 and the Olympics due to ankle and knee problems sustained last summer.
With Wilshere still some way off making a return, Ramsey added: "I know what it's like at that stage.
"I understand what he's going through but he has to be mentally strong - which he has been - and he will be back before he knows it, playing again and showing what he can do.''
