Arshavin Dumps Agent To Represent Himself

Arshavin Dumps Agent To Represent Himself

Andrey Arshavin has decided to become his own representative after giving football agent, Dennis Lachter the boot.

The skillful Russian has decided to go it alone after coming to the conclusion that the business partnership was no longer working with Lachter conducting business from Israel and believes it will be beneficial for him to handle his own business.

'Recently I sent a formal letter to Dennis Lachter, which said that I do not want him to continue to represent me and that I will act on my own behalf,' said Arshavin.

'This is no way associated with my Arsenal contract. On the contrary, I want to express my deep gratitude for Lachter's help in moving to the English club.'

'But now I am having operational problems and Dennis, who has a newborn son, lives in Israel and cannot always be close to me, so it is easier to solve all these problems myself.'

There were always concerns about Arshavin's agent after he initially threw spanner after spanner in the works as Arshavin sought a move from Zenit St Petersburg, constantly talking to the press confirming, denying, then contradicting himself. The final proof that Lachter was a bit of a tool came when trying to complete Andrey's move to Arsenal in January,Lachter responded to text messages from random Gooners stating the probability of the transfer being completed as the transfer deadline approached.

It's a brave move from Arshavin to represent himself, and a move many footballers should look to follow.

Sign up with the PFA son. Look at James Milner, wanted to leave Newcastle, puts in transfer request quietly, goes to Villa for a tidy sum, no hassles. Newcastle got their money, Milner went to a better club on a better contract, all good in the hood. Also telling that Neville and Scholes are also represented by the PFA, amount of stories linking them away from United? None.

Ditto LD, would most likely recoup his tax losses?

Anyone else noticed a sea change at Arsenal this summer? Maybe it's to do with Gazidis, players are getting on the record a lot more. Cesc, Sagna, Clichy have all refuted snowballing rumours instantly, Arshavin has dumped a very troublesome agent. Perhaps the downturn in player/ fan relations has been noticed by the top brass as having had an effect on the team?

Probably too late for Adebayor & player/ fan relations though LD. Unless he starts the season without his anchor attached and notches shed loads of goals. I think the best option would be for him to just go now.

"I was disappointed to be found guilty because I thought it was a real high-pressure situation straight after a game," he said. "I really do think that a precedent should be set that you guys [the television companies] should not be allowed to shove a camera in Premier League managers' faces immediately after a game. "I think there should be a cooling-down period, there should be 30 minutes after a game of football that a manager can allow himself [time]. "I think a precedent should be set that a cooling-down period is a must." He added: "I know it's compulsive viewing when you guys get the chance to catch us unawares and off-guard, and unfortunately it's cost be £2,500." Brown went so far as to insinuate Setanta's interviewer coaxed him into making the comments. "I think I was led down the garden path; I think a trap was set," he said. "The first question that was levelled at me was suggesting that there was cheating going on...I'm not allowed to use that word and no manager is. "It was never my intention to walk into a press conference and accuse anyone of cheating, or a lack of integrity, or bias." Everyone elses fault but yours tango man

LD, do you remember me stating a while back that Arsenal have now changed, appointing Fabregas as captain, getting Gazidis and spending money on Arshavin was three HUGE moments for this club, and if we are to believe reports, we will sign Verlaemen, Melo and Chamakh this summer and only sell two or three (Adebayor and Senderos and/or Toure) and I don't think LD expects Ade to stay,. he has said many times that he sould/will sell Ade.
