Arsenal boss Wenger insists he believes in Chamakh

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he's not lost faith in Marouane Chamakh.

The Morocco international has been linked with a January exit.

"The most difficult thing for a ­player is first the competition he faces - and Chamakh has faced the competition of Van Persie," said Wenger.

"Secondly, if you do not play ­regularly, every time you play you have to be outstanding.

"He is more a player who works for the side, so he needs the confidence. He is not a guy who does something special, he is more a guy who needs to be in there every week. That's why I believe he suffers a bit from the lack of chances he gets."
