Morocco international, Marouane Chamakh is still harbouring a grudge against his former boss, Arsene Wenger. The 32 year-old forward who signed for Cardiff City earlier this week revealed that the French manager did not give him much chance to prove himself at Arsenal, adding that he showed him a lack of respect.
He told RMC, "When I started, it went really well. I took advantage of Van Persie's injuries, which cleared my path. I played for six months, I scored goals, I contributed. In January, Robin came back from injury and overnight I found myself on the bench without any explanation.
"Yes, obviously I'm a little bit annoyed with [Wenger], because I think I deserved more playing time than he gave and promised me. The year passed and at the start of the next season, he told me that the tactical system would perhaps change and that I would maybe start with Robin. It was only promises. There was nothing at the end of them.
