Alexander Hleb has reveealed he deeply regrets his decision to leave Arsenal. Arsenal fans knew from the start he would hardly get to play in the star studded Barcelona side but Hleb didn’t realise that until he moved to Nou Camp.
He got what he primarily went for i.e trophies. But winning trophies while sitting on the bench isn’t something that pleases the Belarussian international. The former Gunner admitted in an emotional interview that he would love to play again for Arsenal but it’s too late now:
“When you mostly sit on the bench, winning titles brings very little joy, while getting to the last eight of the Champions League with Arsenal was unforgettable.
“I regret my move from London, but unfortunately nothing can be done about it now
“For me, Wenger was like a father. I consider him one of the best managers in the world.
“For such a boss one wants to die on the pitch. Arsene managed to create a smashing team with a wonderful atmosphere inside of it.
“I have no doubts that if Arsenal had the same budget as Barcelona, the Gunners would be among the three best clubs on the planet.”
So Gooners can all laugh at the greedy guy now! He is probably off to Inter Milan now so lets hope he earns some more experience of warming the bench. First in Spain, now in Italy. Good luck to Hleb!
