Arshavin Goes On Loan To Zenit

Arshavin Goes On Loan To Zenit

Andre Arshavin via his won website that he has joined his former club, Zenit St Petersburg on loan.

After playing in the reserves against Norwich midweek, following an horrendous 12 months worth of form for the Gunners the badly performing Russian has now been granted a loan move back to his previous club.

AA confirmed it on his own website.

"I've moved to 'Zenit'. On loan, will play under number 29.

ll the details tomorrow, when you wake up. :)"

I`ve always felt a little sorry for Arshavin, an often misunderstood player trying to play through a bad patch.

I hope he can find a bit of happiness with Zenit.

I can only wish Arshavin well with his new team and this will probably work out well for him as the Euros approach. With the spate of injuries we seem to be having, I do hope we have no reason to regret his departure because he isn't that much of a bad squad players as some fans will want you to believe. Good luck, Little Russian.

So, starring for the reserves was probably a shop window gimmick to allow Zenit run the rule over the man; not that they needed that to know his capabilities. Is this a sign of things to come for our other players who have failed to up their games? One has to wonder.

So Chamakh on loan to Bordeaux and Park to Monaco?

...Well, you never know, after all, the summer is just round the corner :-). More like the Manager is sending a clear message to under-performing stars which should augur well for the team's waning cometitive edge.

I don't think Wenger can send a message to players who don't even play. "See what happens when you don't up your game, you get dropped, hear that Chamakh and Park... oh."

Thanks for the memories Andrei and all the best. Some memorable goals, amazing skill and yet a lingering feeling of a talent underutilised. AOC and Benayoun can cover in his absence.

he is best playing in the hole. covering for full back never suited him. it's a shame because he has such great skills & personality

PC, you'll agree Chamakh has had his opportunities, though. Park? Now, that's a puzzle. The only thing to assume is he doesn't do enough in training.

DF, the 4 vs Liverpool, the winner against Barca and that one against United at OT, come to mind easily. We know he will do well at Zenit and should have a good last hurrah at the Euros.
