David Bellion admits he is becoming increasingly frustrated by a lack of regular football at Bordeaux.
The former Manchester United striker has rarely played in Laurent Blanc's first team this term, making just four starts in the league along with 11 further substitute appearances.
After a less than successful spell in England with United between 2003 and 2005, Bellion returned to France with Nice, where he impressed enough to earn a move to Bordeaux.
He initially proved a success but is way down Blanc's pecking order this season and is weighing up his future with the French champions.
"I have never played so few games, it is even worse in 2010," the 27-year-old lamented in L'Equipe.
"My average is one game every three months. At certain times I've asked to play with the reserves. I prefer that than to wait and get rusty.
"I want to work, I want to play. People say 'they are footballers, they earn a great living with nice cars and nice houses'.
"But when I go home I have unfinished emotions. My happiness is on the pitch.
"It is difficult, it is frustrating. I know people experience much more difficult situations.
"But a player can never accept being on the bench. If the officials extended my stay then they should trust me."
