Hleb's parting shot to Wenger: I'm playing well but Arsenal have won nothing for three years so it's time for me to move on
http://www.mailonsunday.co.uk/sport/football/article-1022694/Hlebs-parting-shot-Wenger-I-played-Arsenal-won-time-on.html

Alexander Hleb has revealed that he is leaving Arsenal because of their failure to win a trophy in the past three seasons.

The Belarus international now appears to be heading for Barcelona after they put a better offer on the table than Inter Milan.

Hleb has two years left on his contract but has turned down a new deal to stay at Emirates Stadium.

The 27-year-old winger insisted that he had learned a lot under Arsene Wenger, but the Gunners' lack of silverware since they won the FA Cup in 2005 made his mind up to seek a fresh challenge.

He said: “Titles are the most important thing. You can play very well, perhaps the best ever but after the career you ask what you have won.

“To win a title is also the most important thing for me. The clock is ticking but it is simply not happening. It is very difficult. In this year I thought that I would win two titles, but as I said everything went wrong.

“I do not know what happened. Suddenly everything was gone. It is a pity because this season it was going very well.

“I think I played quite well, even though it could have been better. I am satisfied. Only with the end that we have no title, I am obviously not satisfied.â€

Hleb, who joined Arsenal in 2005, praised Wenger for the decisive role he has had in his career.

“I have learned so much from Arsene Wenger,†he said. “This man has always supported me and given me the chance to come to Arsenal. I would therefore never say anything negative about Arsenal.

“If I'll go, then only in a different league, in any case, in England, there is only Arsenal or me.â€

Fair enough, he wants silverware....

.....but he leaves, the club!

Would he not focus on winning something with them?



I thought Arsenal were going to be a force in years to come, but Wengers
promising side is falling apart!

Sums up Arsenal's previous seasons.They play good football but when it is crunch time,they fall apart at the seams.I understand Hleb's statement to leave.He is 27,not exactly a teenager and he is looking to win trophies.

:D He desperately wants to win trophies AND he apparently goes to Barcelona...maybe he didn't realize, that "Barca" didn't win anything since the 17th May 2006.

- exactly. It's a total cop out. If he wanted to win trophies he should be looking at Real Madrid, who want him too. Yet, he is thinking about Barca, because they offered him more money.

He should just say its about money. What a mercenary, but I don't expect anything else from Arsenal players. What a disgusting lot!
