Ivory Coast striker Aruna Dindane is delighted to have been given the go-ahead to play again for Portsmouth for the remainder of the season.
The 29-year-old had been left out recently, with his parent club Lens due a payment of £4million dependent on Dindane's appearances for cash-strapped Pompey.
However, the lively frontman was allowed to play again after talks with Lens chairman Gervais Martel and made the most of the opportunity by netting twice in the 2-2 weekend draw at Bolton.
He told The News:"I am very happy to play again, for me it is a big relief.
"As a footballer, it is very difficult if you can't play. Now I can go out on the pitch again and I managed to score two goals.
"If you can't play because of a contract between two clubs, it's very, very frustrating. For too long I want to play, it's important to play, but I am not allowed.
"Everything was going on in my head, so I went to see the chairman and asked him to sign the paper to let me play in our last four games.
"I said 'let me play because at the moment I can do nothing. If I can play, maybe I can go to the World Cup'.
"The chairman did that and I thank him. It's too late, but thank you.
"I was worried about the World Cup. If you don't play for two or three months I think you are finished.
"Now I am very happy to play and want to keep doing well in the games and scoring goals. That is my aim."
