Peguy Luyindula has been left feeling like an outcast at Paris St Germain after being frozen out of the first-team picture.
The 32-year-old forward remains under contract with the Ligue 1 giants but has been forced to train with the club's reserves.
Coach Antoine Kombouare has made it clear that he no longer figures in his plans and the France international admits he is unsure what the future will hold.
"I am trying to understand why I have been sent away, but I can't," Luyindula told Le Parisien.
"When I ask, I am told that it is the choice of the manager. I am being treated like a leper.
"I don't dare go to Parc des Princes to watch my team-mates because I don't know if I would be welcomed or sent packing.
"The coach met me earlier in the season and said he doesn't want me anymore.
"Since I have been overlooked I don't have a relationship with the professional group and I have no relationship with the coach.
"I have tried to contact Leonardo, but he has not replied to me."
Kombouare has confirmed that he has no plans to bring Luyindula back into the fold.
He said: "His current situation is a direct consequence of pure sporting choices.
"I have worked with him for two years and, on a sporting level, I think we have gone as far as we can."
