Chamakh hints at January move
Nov 06, 2012 3:00 PM GMT
Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh has suggested if he is not playing regular football for the Gunners, he may return to Bordeaux in January.
Chamakh had felt that the departure of Robin van Persie to Manchester United during the summer would result in him playing for the club more regularly.
However, with the likes of Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, coupled with the recent decision to play Gervinho as a striker, Chamakh has spent the majority of the season warming the substitutes’ bench.
"After Robin van Persie left, I thought I'd play more," he told French radio station RMC.
"The competition is always a little hard in a club like that. I expected it.
"It's (up) to me to prove myself. But, in two, three months If nothing changes, I must make a decision.
"With the departure of Robin, I'd say that I had a playing card. And if my playing time doesn't change, I'm not fooled, I'll go away."
The 28-year-old insisted he would like to stay in the Premier League, but refused to rule out a move to former club Bordeaux.
"Bordeaux? It could be a solution, if I decide to go. But my priority is to stay at Premier League," he added.
