Oh, Arshavin isn’t going to Barca, insists Arshavin blog
Okay, this WON’T be happening
It’s been a week of will he/won’t he speculation for Arsenal’s dinky little fashion designer, Andrey Arshavin, but today you can probably concede that he won’t. Won’t be going to Barcelona, that is.
His wonderful blog – usually so rich in unexpected humour – issued a rather serious statement, which didn’t come with an emoticon attached, but if it had, it would have been this one (aka “the straight face”): :-I
Over the past few days we have received hundreds of letters from Arsenal fans with requests to comment on Andrey Arshavin‘s interview for the British edition of “The People” magazine. This interview was also reprinted by a number of other media. Unfortunately, it has become normal, that many dishonorable journalists exploit Andrey Arshavin‘s name, giving the press false and provocative information. Never in his sports career has Andrey made any excuses or reacted to such statements. Perhaps such impunity gives them the right to continue to defame and compromise the Russian National Team captain and Arsenal‘s player.
In this case, it is worth noting that Andrey Arshavin hasn’t given any interviews or communicated with any representatives of this tabloid. The article caused a storm of fans’ indignation and outrage. Andrey is a player of Arsenal. So he is responsible for the honour and dignity of the club not only during the game, but also in life. With regards to Mr. Lahter’s statements that have also been actively discussed in the press, Andrey states: “Denis Lahter has not been representing my interests for a year now, he is not my agent. He does not have any information regarding my prospects and career plans, so his statements about my future endeavors shouldn’t be taken for a fact or paid attention to. “
That’s settled then.
Or is it?
