There has been some reports which have claimed Lukas Podolski admits he is growing increasingly frustrated at Arsenal
The German, who has not completed a full 90 minutes since the Champions League second-leg at Bayern Munich at the start of March, was withdrawn again during Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final with Wigan.
Podolski made way for Olivier Giroud as the Gunners searched for an equaliser in the 1-1 draw and, although he was pleased to see his side go through on penalties, he conceded the situation is getting to him.
‘I play and in the last games, I always come out and of course you cannot be happy when you always go out after 60, 70 minutes,’ he said.
‘When you go out and you are happy, you are not a footballer so of course I am not happy always to be substituted.
‘It’s the decision of the boss, he is the manager. He decides who comes in, who comes out, who are the first XI.
‘It’s not always easy when you play for a big club but of course I am not happy to always come out and watch from outside. You cannot be happy with this situation.’ (Metro)
It would not be a massive shock to see him leave this summer
