Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette relaxed over benching for City game - agent

Alexandre Lacazette's agent says the Arsenal striker is not worried about being benched for Sunday's loss to Manchester City and that "everything is fine" between the player and Arsene Wenger.

Lacazette was dropped for the second time in a big away game by Wenger but came on in the second half to pull a goal back in the 3-1 defeat

While Wenger's decision drew criticism after the game, Lacazette's agent, David Venditelli, said the striker -- also benched for the 4-0 loss to Liverpool in August -- is staying calm about the situation.

"It's not worrying, because he played at Chelsea," Venditelli told SFR Sport. "Our way of working is to relativise things: 11 matches, nine starts. Of course, it's not nice to see that he didn't start that match, but it was -- as Arsene Wenger explained -- for tactical reasons.

"He's learning. Alex needs to have calm around him. He's happy, and Arsenal are too with his work. It's not because a player doesn't play, even though it's two important games of course. He would have preferred to have played them."

Alexandre Lacazette joined Arsenal from Lyon this summer.

Lacazette has scored six league goals in 11 games since his arrival at the Emirates this summer, but has been rested for the Europa League and Carabao Cup.

The striker has also been subbed off for Olivier Giroud in nearly every game he has started.

But while BBC pundit Alan Shearer suggested after the City match that Lacazette should confront Wenger about the decision, Venditelli said there are no plans to do so.

"When you're outside the club, I can understand the questions," Venditelli said. "I understand, but I think Alex isn't complaining about his playing time, even if he would prefer to start games like those against City or Liverpool.

"But he talks to the manager, the staff -- there's no problem. Afterwards, there's a choice made. You can't, every time your player doesn't play, even if it's Alexandre Lacazette, knock on the door or pick up the phone and talk to the manager. No, no, it's not time yet. Everything is fine."
