Well it’s official: Arsenal midfielder Alexander Hleb really doesn’t want to stay at Arsenal. Or it at least looks that way after his agent decided to fan the already raging flames between his client and the club by linking Hleb with a possible move to Real Madrid.
The saga surrounding Alexander Hleb’s future at Arsenal took yet another turn as his representative claimed that it is a “great honour” for the midfielder to be touted as a possible target of Spanish giants Real Madrid. (Telegraph)
Hleb’s agent continued to stir the pot with this gem of a quote.
“For any player in the world it is always a great honour that a club like Real Madrid is interested in him,” Ferber told Spanish newspaper AS. “This confirms the good work that Hleb has been doing in these last few years that he is being recognised by one of the greatest clubs in the world. Nobody should have any doubts that the interest from Madrid is a privilege for the player.” (Telegraph)
Regardless of what happens in this saga, Hleb and his agent have shown their true colours. They have no problem biting the hand that feeds them, and the lack of respect shown to Arsenal proves that the Belarusian is fine burning bridges with the London club.
Arsenal supporters: Would you still take Hleb back even after hearing these comments, or are you tired of the whole situation and wish he’d just go away?
