Cape Town - Arsenal's out-of-favour striker Joel Campbell insists he is calm at Arsenal despite a lack of first team opportunities.

Campbell, who starred in Costa Rica's suprise run at the World Cup, posted a message on www.sports.bycampbell.com rubbishing the claims that he is "furious" at the London club. 

"What they have been saying is not true, I'm very calm. I have not been furious," said Campbell. 

"Obviously, yes, I would like to be playing, but that's something that has to be earned day by day.

"I have to keep training and waiting for the opportunity, I know it's a very competitive team.

"Arsenal is one of the best teams in the world where there are many important players. I have to be patient, keep training and I know my chance will arrive and I'll have to take advantage of it when it comes.

"[I've learned] a lot (from Arsene Wenger). He is a coach who has many years in football and with Arsenal. I am learning from him and from my peers every day in training. I'm doing my best to be a better player every day."
