Bordeaux president Jean-Lois Triaud thinks the Morocco stinker could be making a huge error.
Triaud claims Chamakh agreed to sign for Arsenal "without ever speaking to Arsene Wenger".
He added: "I believe Marouane has been advised very badly. His departure from the club and how it happened, I do not agree at all.
"Since I have been president of this club there have only been two complicated departures: Sylvain Wiltord and Marouane Chamakh , and coincidentally both chose Arsenal. I do not jump to conclusions I am just making a point."
