The striker is fed-up with his 'supersub' tag.
"Iâ€™ve proved myself wherever I have been which is why, maybe, I can say that although some people and maybe some of you guys, some of the media, donâ€™t respect me very much I have done it before and I will do it again,â€ť snapped Dzeko in the Sunday Telegraph.
â€śYes, some people donâ€™t respect me.
â€śI donâ€™t know why. I donâ€™t find it upsetting or anything. Maybe when I was younger I found it harder but now Iâ€™m older, more experienced and I know what I can do and what I have achieved then I just concentrate on my own game.â€ť
He added: "Itâ€™s not great for me. But with my goals and with the goals I have scored so far this year I think I deserve to play more.â€ť
