Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky will consider his future at the Emirates Stadium in the coming weeks should he continue to be overlooked this season.
Rosicky has only featured for 21 minutes this term – in the Community Shield win over Manchester City and the Champions League play-off first leg against Besiktas – after signing a two-year contract extension in April.
The 33-year-old is growing increasingly frustrated at his lack of minutes despite being in only the second month of the campaign and admits he may be forced to leave Arsenal should Arsene Wenger continue to leave him out.
"It's too early for that. The season is yet to get going, the Champions League will begin and it will be a roller-coaster of fixtures," he told CTK.
"We will see what the situation looks like in the coming weeks and months, how it develops. I'm naturally disappointed not to have been given a chance but not panicking yet.
"All I can do now is to train properly and show that I'm prepared. And when the chance comes, to take it.
The Czech Republic international added: "The lack of match practice has been absolutely terrible and, naturally, it makes me very sorry that I haven't been given a chance yet.
"It is difficult mainly because you know that the potential of the team is elsewhere and we haven't done well so far. I think I could have helped but, unfortunately, I can't put myself on the pitch."
Rosicky was among a host of Arsenal players to extend their contract last season but following the additions of Calum Chambers and Alexis Sanchez, his involvement this season could be curtailed.
He made 39 appearances in all competitions last season for Arsenal but the return to fitness of Lukas Podolski and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, coupled with the new signings leaves the ex-Borussia Dortmund midfielder facing a campaign on the side-lines.
