The Arsenal midfielder visited Winter Wonderland in London's Hyde Park on Sunday
Lukas Podolski took to Instagram on Sunday to aim a subtle dig at Arsene Wenger over his lack of playing time at Arsenal this season.
The Germany international was once again an unused substitute as Arsenal slumped to a 2-1 defeat by Manchester United at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Podolski’s future has been a source of speculation in recent weeks, with the forward not having started a Premier League game this term.
And his latest Instagram post will have done little to quieten rumours linking him with a January move away from Emirates Stadium, after he used the hashtag ‘#BreakFromTheBench’ to accompany a photo of himself at Winter Wonderland in London.
Podolski posted the picture above and wrote: “Enjoyed my rainy Sunday afternoon at Winter Wonderland with the family. #hydepark #gunnersumbrella #familytime #dayout #EnjoyLife #Poldi #BreakFromTheBench.”
Speaking last week, Podolski said: “I have to speak to Wenger because the situation at the moment is not good for me.
“I have to play. I am happy at Arsenal and happy in London but I don’t have the chance to play.”
