Arsenal’s striker Marouane Chamakh has dismissed all the rumours which were linking him to a possible move away from the Emirates Stadium during the January transfer window opening, and according to the Moroccan he’s set to stay at the club at least until the summer.
“I am relaxed about my future. I’ve spoken with the coach [Wenger] and I’m staying with Arsenal after the Africa Cup of Nations,”
“I think Wenger has confidence in me. It was that reason that I left Bordeaux to join Arsenal.
“I had some good performances in my first season and it’s possible that I can repeat those.
“My agents have had calls from other clubs, but I want to show what I can do in the next few months.
“I’m tired of the rumours, because I only want to be focused on my work for Morocco. Personally, I have a lot more in my game and I want to demonstrate my level.
“Of course I want to play more, but it’s very difficult for a forward at Arsenal. The level is very high, but that’s the challenge that I was looking for.”
Now, did he just say that “it’s possible to repeat those”? Possible? Is that what the club is paying this fellow for the “possibility” of scoring and putting in good performances? Now if this doesn’t make Arsenal’s fans man nothing will. He’s supposed to put in top performances game in game out not wonder about the possibility of playing good now isn’t he…?
