Marouane Chamakh: Would be interested in a return to Bordeaux

Chamakh is due to go back to Emirates Stadium in the summer after joining West Ham United on loan in January, but it is likely that he would remain a long way down Arsene Wenger's pecking order.

He has struggled to make an impact in the Premier League since making the move to English football from Bordeaux in 2010, and he admits he misses life in France.

The Morocco international, 29, says that if he does ever go back to Ligue 1 he would only be interested in a return to Bordeaux.

"I am always nostalgic. I spent so many good times here," he told 10 Sport on a visit to the region for a charity event.

"Everyone knows that Bordeaux is a club that is in my heart. If I find an agreement with Bordeaux, why not."

Asked if it really might be possible, he continued: "Yes, this is possible because there is a good chance that I will not stay at Arsenal.

"If I come back to France, it will be in Bordeaux."

It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
