Arsenal fans admit they forgot Jenkinson was still at the club

Carl Jenkinson has become the forgotten man at Arsenal due to his failure to land a regular spot in the first team.

The right-back has been part of the fold at the North London outfit since 2011 when he joined the club from Charlton Athletic.

Since then, the 26-year-old has dropped in and out of the team, but more recently, manager Arsene Wenger has not deemed the player good enough to use regularly in his squad.

Jenkinson had two loan spells at West Ham United in the last few seasons, and in the current campaign, the full-back is playing at Birmingham City on a temporary deal.

His term at St Andrew’s has been a miserable one given that he dislocated his shoulder on his debut against Reading in August, and has made just two further appearances – both in the FA Cup – since then.

Today, on his 26th birthday, Arsenal sent out a tweet wishing Jenkinson well, which sparked a reaction from the fans.
