Dear Marouane Chamakh,
Pack it in will you? Just about every day since the last month or two of last season, there's been something in the papers about your determination to leave Bordeaux and play for Arsenal, Liverpool or, indeed, pledging your future to Bordeaux again. It's tiresome.
Everybody is aware that your contract ends at the end of the current season and it's becoming rapidly apparent that nobody cares any more. So do us all a favour: shut your mouth, stay out of the papers, crack on with your job and your future will sort itself out.
But for crying out loud, shut up.
