Arsenal’s Joel Campbell plays down exit talk

Arsenal forward Joel Campbell has revealed he is frustrated with a lack of playing time, but is still not considering an exit from the Emirates, reports ESPN.

The Costa Rica international, 22, has made only two substitute appearances in the Premier League this season, and admitted he was disappointed at being on the fringes after forcing his way into the first-team following an impressive loan spell with Olympiakos (2013/14: 11 goals, 12 assists).

“What they have been saying is not true — I’m very calm. I have not been furious. Obviously, yes, I would like to be playing, but that’s something that has to be earned day by day. I have to keep training and waiting for the opportunity. I know it’s a very competitive team,” he said.

“Arsenal is one of the best teams in the world, where there are many important players. I have to be patient, keep training and I know my chance will arrive and I’ll have to take advantage of it when it comes. I am learning from (manager Arsene Wenger) and from my peers every day in training. I’m doing my best to be a better player every day.
