Gallery: At home with the Arshavin family

An insight into the fascinating private life of an Arsenal star

At home with Andrei Arshavin and his family

Ever since Andrei Arshavin joined Arsenal in January, certain questions have plagued football fans: which brand of butter does the Russian prefer? Does his wife own any bright pink velour tracksuits? How do his boots looked when photographed next to a pear?

Thankfully, our prayers have been answered with the release of these pictures, which show the Arsenal midfielder at home with partner-who-he-calls-his-wife-even-though-they’re-not-married Julia and son Artyom.

Lord only knows how or why these pictures got onto the internet, or why there is a distinct lack of Andrei Arshavin sex faces, but you can check out the rest after the jump…

Andrei surfs the net, and wonders why the picture on his television is so small.

Julia polishes off her third beer of the night while donning a fierce pink tracksuit. She doesn’t restrict her drinking to the privacy of her own home though.

Unaware that he is no longer surrounded by a freezing Russian climate, Andrei still opts to wear a jacket indoors.

If it wasn’t for the pear, potential eBay customers would have no idea how big his boots are.

Proof that Andrei doesn’t exclusively wear Arsenal training gear at home. He also wears awful pullovers.

When she isn’t drinking, Andrei’s childlike wife likes to sweep the patio in her jammies.

    I think the caption on the second one should be:

    “And this is me scoring against Liverpool…….and this one is also me scoring against Liverpool….oh, look, me again scoring against Liv…..stop pulling that face, wife of mine”

    you know for all acrimony at zenit about a transfer, he seems like a down to earth chap. i thought he was gonna be a prima donna. which all means that his mr. 15% must be a hell of a shit stirrer.

    2Justin, and this coming most probably from a Brit – a nation that is famous for its knowledge of fashion and style.

    Its enough walking through the streets of any town or city in Britain to see that 90% of population dress up like chavs.

    what a shit article ment to be sarcastic but just stupid in fact. They are at home by the way! Haven’t you noticed? And probably they can relax there, right? Hey Justin do you dress up at home? I doubt but you’re a really cool man if you do. Russians are very esthetic people, much more than Englishmen. Moreover I wouldn’t say that many people in London have any particular style at all although you have a lot of prominent fashion designers. And beautiful women as well as handsome men are almost extinct on your islands. Haha. So shut up envious Englishmen!
