When asked how he felt about his role at the club this season, the former Bayern Munich man was understandably displeased.

“Of course I am not happy with my situation right now,” he said.

“I can’t be satisfied with that. It is hard when you can’t do what you love.

He baulked at the suggestion that his lack of game time was down to his own form, claiming that if you aren’t given enough game time then you can’t judge a player’s form.

“If you only come in for 8 or 10 minutes it is hard to get into the game. If you can’t play then you can’t say he’s not playing well or he has a crisis if you’re not given the chance.”

The powerful forward seemed as clueless about why he isn’t being played as everyone else, saying “I don’t know why that is, you’d have to ask my coach in England.”

His continued exclusion from the team has prompted further rumours that he will be on his way out of the Emirates at the soonest opportunity, and his comments certainly didn’t suggest otherwise.

“We’ll see what happens in January.”
