Marouane Chamakh launches tirade at Bordeaux

Table of Contents
Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh has hit out at Bordeaux officials for failing to agree a deal to sell him.

The 25-year-old, who has played his entire career with Les Girondins, has been left fuming by the club's decision to reject bids from two Premier League clubs.

Sunderland failed in their attempt to sign Chamakh even though their offer was understood to have matched or been very close to Bordeaux's valuation of the player.

While it is claimed that Arsenal have seen a £6 million bid turned down by the Stade Chaban-Delmas outfit.

"Already I am told that Sunderland is not the club for me - but since when does a club chose the future of a player?" Chamakh told L'Equipe.

"Then my bosses tell me they will let me go to one of the 'Big Four' like Arsenal.

"And then when an offer comes in, it is refused because they want a bigger fee as I have one-year left on my contract.

"Everything is being done to prevent my move, I do not understand given how much service I have given to Bordeaux.

"Joining Arsenal is my dream. My agents are in talks with Arsenal and I really hope it will go off smoothly. I don't want to start a trail of strength with my officials."

He added: "I am angry, I am disgusted and I do not understand why they have done that.

"One thing is certain, I will not be signing a new contract - if they will not let me go now, I will leave for free.

"If a solution cannot be found quickly, everyone will lose. Frankly I really do not want to start the season with Bordeaux."
