Lukas Podolski wants crisis talks with his manager.
Arsenal and Germany forward Lukas Podolski has demanded showdown talks with his manager Arsene Wenger, report the Express, after the former Cologne striker claimed that he was being treated like a “clown” by the club due to a lack of opportunities to impress in the first team.

Podolski had a subtle dig at his manager on Instagram yesterday evening by including the hashtag #breakfromthebench with one of his photos after an evening out with his family and it would seem that his frustration is now coming to a head.
The German international, who has never really been given a run in the first team since moving to Arsenal from the Bundesliga, is quoted as saying:
“I have to try to talk with Arsene Wenger. I want a fair chance. I love London, I like the club, but I do not like the situation. I’m not a clown.”
