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.
