Lukas Podolski admits that he is “not happy” about being regularly substituted for Arsenal this season.

The Germany forward has completed 90 minutes just twice this season and was taken off before 70 minutes during the FA Cup semi-final win over Wigan Athletic.

Of course I am not happy always to be substituted

And although the 28-year-old accepts that the competition for places at Arsenal is always going to be intense, he is keen to play full games more often.

“Of course. I play and, in the last games, I always come out and of course you cannot be happy when you always go out after 60, 70 minutes,” said Podolski.

“Of course I am not happy always to be substituted.

“It’s the decision of the boss. It’s not always easy when you play for a big club but of course I am not happy to always come out and watch from outside. You cannot be happy with this situation.”
