Andrei Arshavin claims that he may quit football

Former Arsenal record signing Andrei Arshavin claims that he may quit football if he does not receive any offer from a new club in the next few months.

The 34-year-old winger was recently released from his contract at Kuban Krasnodar. He had been at the Russian Premier League for only 12 months and he made only eight appearances during this period. The lack of match fitness has been a major constraint for Arshavin in the last few years. He was once the record signing for Arsenal, but his performances faded during the latter part of his time at the Emirates stadium.

Sanchez takes over where Arshavin left off

Alexis Sanchez has grown into one of the important players at Arsenal and his rise up the ladder has been tremendous. He joined the club in a £ 35 million deal from Barcelona. The presence of more expensive players like Mesut Ozil was expected to be a hindrance.

However, the Chilean has been influential in his own way. Sanchez ended up getting more than 20 goals in his first season at the club. Even though his second season has been slightly muted compared to his first, there is no doubt denying the talent within the 27-year-old.

Mikel Arteta says he would like to work the Arsene Wenger way

Mikel Arteta says he would like to work the Arsene Wenger way if he gets the opportunity to coach a Football club ever in the future.

As 2015-16 Season finishes, Arteta’s contract at the Emirates Stadium will expire and there are no hints that he is going to be offered a new one. So, his playing future is pretty much up in the air at the moment.

However, coaching is something that Arteta has seemed to be quite interested in recently and it’s believed he might be willing to build a career as a full time coach when his playing days are over.

According to the Spaniard though, he has not started planning ahead and is just concentrating on doing well for Arsenal at this point in time.

Arsene Wenger has branded Mesut Ozil as a world-class player

Arsene Wenger has branded Mesut Ozil as a world-class player, but he also feels that the German needs to score more goals in order to prove his worth to the rest of the world.

Ozil was signed from Real Madrid for more than £ 40 million and he is the club record signing for Arsenal. After a mediocre campaign with the gunners, he is starting to establish himself in the English league. The German has taken more time than many expected him to settle in the new league. Ozil proved his quality with a fine goal in the 2-0 win over German’s Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The shock exit without winning the Gold Cup

The shock exit without winning the Gold Cup has raised speculation about the future of manager Jurgen Klinsmann.

The former Germany national team boss has made some crucial changes to the style and the way the national team performed. He has been the head coach of the US national team over the last few years. During this period, the US have gone from being a potential underdog into a challenger. The team has achieved great results in the recent World Cup and in friendly matches against the likes of Germany. However, they were unable to build on this good form at the recent Gold Cup.

Emiliano Martinez might find himself playing in Spain

Emiliano Martinez, the no. 3 shot stopper for Arsenal, might find himself playing in Spain the coming summer as there are talks of him being placed on loan to Getafe.

The Gunners are actually looking to secure the services of Petr Cech and in case that deal materializes, there is no point keeping Martinez in the ranks as the possibility of him featuring for the club would be zero.

Cech would be the first choice for Arsene Wenger if he does come in, David Ospina would be his understudy and the third one in the pecking order would be Wojciech Szczesny.
As far as Martinez is concerned, the previous season, he got to have a few games to his name in which he did rather well.

In half of the games that he played, he walked away with clean sheets.

Andres Iniesta has stated that he is forever indebted

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta has stated that he is forever indebted to the club’s former manager, Louis van Gaal.

The Dutchman recently became the Manchester United manager and has been experiencing a lot of success over the last few months. However, it will almost be a year before there is a possibility of United and Barcelona coming up against each other in the Champions League. Iniesta has been one of the world’s finest central midfielders. Even though he has not been at his best in the last couple of years, it was not long ago that he was in central figure in Barcelona’s Champions League success and Spain’s World Cup title.

Andre Villas Boas didnt joined any Club

Andre Villas Boas could easily have joined a renowned European Club after parting ways with Tottenham Hotspur.

He has been regarded as a very exciting young manager in Europe and thus, needless to say that he had had the representatives of a lot of clubs calling him once he left the White Hart Lane, but, the 37-year old remained disinterested towards all those offers and that’s because he did not want to go to a place again where he would be working in immense pressure and media scrutiny.

Villas Boas was looking for a place where he could be given some time and allowed to work in peace.

And, that’s why; the Portuguese chose Zenit St. Petersburg above all the big, flashy names that he had in front of him.

Petersburg ready to Snatch Title from CSKA Moscow

ZenitSaint Petersburg is on their way of taking the Russian Premier League title away from the hands of CSKA Moscow with the team of Andre Villas-Boas currently located at the top of the Russian League after going through an impressive start of the league which has seen Zenit only losing 1 match out of the 13 games that have been played.

However, not everything is going in favor of Zenit Saint Petersburg as the Russian club is struggling trying to grab a qualifying spot into the last 16 teams in the Champions League after having sustained successive defeats against Bayer Leverkusen.

Adel Taarabt and Harry war of Words

QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt has once again continued his war of words with manager Harry Redknapp by claiming that he does not know why he is not being selected for the matches.

The enigmatic Morocco winger has not started for the club since August. He is also looking unlikely to change that in the coming weeks since QPR appear to have found form at just the right stage. They have played extremely well in the matches against Chelsea and Liverpool. Redknapp recently criticised the winger for being not fit for selection, but Adel Taarabt hit back by saying that the manager did not have any idea about his fitness.
