Gilberto frustrated at Arsenal exclusion

Troubles brewing at Arsenal these days. Gilberto Silva is reported to be unhappy at his exclusion from regular first team football under manager Arsene Wenger and wants an explanation. He is quoted as saying:

To this day I’m waiting for an explanation as to this change. The truth is I found out about it through the newspapers.

Any plans to move, Gilberto?

I thought I had a good season last year and I saw no reason for what has happened. If I continue not to play, then leaving Arsenal is inevitable. I could not cope with another season like this one when Wenger has made me feel totally useless. A player must be able to smile. A sad Brazilian is no good, especially on a football pitch. Right now I really am struggling to battle on.

So the Brazilian international defensive midfield could be on his way out of the Emirates at the end of the season. That could come back to haunt Arsenal and Arsene Wenger later.
