Newcastle United's £63million man Alexander Isak has insisted that any injury woe is now firmly behind him after shaking off a troublesome groin injury – with Paris St-Germain now firmly in his sights.
Isak's comeback, after a month out, saw him score the opener in the 4-1 win over Chelsea in the Premier League at St James' Park. Eddie Howe has already indicated he must "manage" Isak's work-load carefully with Callum Wilson also sidelined with a hamstring injury.
But Isak is focused on the challenge ahead of him, and told Chronicle Live: "I'm fine and I'm ready. Yes I know about the responsibility but we do it all as a team.

"It is always frustrating to suffer an injury at any time. But I have to leave that all behind me now. My aim is to try to stay fit now."
The 24-year-old latched on to Lewis Miley's superb pass to fire in his eighth of the season for Newcastle on Saturday. And he admits he could not have asked for a better start.
Isak said: "I am delighted to be back, delighted with the performance and delighted with the goal, it's all good again. It was a good moment for the team more than anything. OK, Chelsea got their goal quite quickly after it, but we came back.
"It wasn't an easy game but the second half we came up more energy than they did. And that is what ultimately gave us the win.
"We knew they were a good side and dangerous on the counter attack. But we also knew if we played our way we would create chances too.
Despite Newcastle's lengthy absentee list ahead of the Group F game in Paris, Isak spoke about the players that have carried United over the line in the last few games. It is a philosophy that Howe has driled into his players, telling them to focus on the "haves, not the have nots".
Isak said: "We have a great squad here. We focus on the ones we have fit and they are doing great. So we must just keep doing what they are doing."
