Former Arsenal star Aleksandr Hleb has pleased Gunners fans by blanking Chelsea ace Cesc Fabregas before the match between Belarus and Spain on Sunday.
The 34-year-old played for the North London club for three years between 2005 and 2008, making 129 appearances and scoring ten goals. While supporters did like the winger, he wouldn’t exactly be classed as a legend after that spell.
However, if he keeps this up his long-term reputation could be transformed!
The midfielder looked happy to say hello to former Barcelona teammates Sergio Busquets and Gerard Pique, but ignored Fabregas when he tried to talk to him. The Spain international looked heartbroken afterwards.
This comes after the 28-year-old joined London rivals Chelsea last summer. The midfielder has made matters worse for Gunners fans by being successful at Stamford Bridge. He scored five goals and assisted another 21 as the Blues won both the Premier League and Capital One Cup in the last campaign.
Hleb seemed to understand this pain!
