Almunia upset with Arsenal over Schwarzer pursuit

Table of Contents
Arsenal's pursuit of Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has infuriated the Gunners' current No 1, Manuel Almunia, to the point where he'd prefer to leave in search of first-team football.

The Gunners are hoping to seal a deal for Schwarzer this week. It will mean the Aussie will replace Almunia, who failed to impress boss Arsène Wenger last season.

"I don't see anything else outside of Arsenal," Almunia told London Evening Standard.

"It will be very difficult to play for another team in England if it wasn't Arsenal. Spain would also be difficult.

"But I am 33 years old and only have a few more years left in football. I would like to enjoy them. I am a keeper who enjoys playing."

The Spaniard added: "To be honest, it is so difficult to concentrate because Arsenal is a big club and speculation is always in the news and everywhere.

"The only thing I can do is keep working because I have a contract here and I have to do what the manager wants from me.

"If somebody comes in, I will have to talk about my future at Arsenal. That is it.

"I have to work and if one day I am not good for Arsenal, I will talk. That is no problem. I am very happy here.

"The only news I have is from third parties - people at the training ground. When I go out and when I come back from training, I switch off."
