Pavel Pogrebnyak: I believe Arshavin will return to Arsenal
Fulham striker Pavel Pogrebnyak hinted his Russia international team-mate Andrey Arshavin, on loan at Zenit from Arsenal will look to return to the Emirates in the summer.
«How did the English react to such a poor run in the European tournaments?»
«It seems that the failure of the majority of English sides to qualify to the next round of the Champions League is a coincidence. And the Europa League didn’t really concern anyone here.»
«Do you still watch the Russian Premier League?»
«I can’t at the moment, but I intend to get cable TV in my new home, and then I will watch it.»
«You complained earlier that you are now the only Russian in the EPL. Do you think Arshavin will return?»
«Yes, as he still has a contract with the Gunners.»
«Rumour has it that Podolski’s possible arrival will block the Russia captain’s return…»
«Andrey is a world-class player and he is as good as the German. I think he will come back,» Pogrebnyak told Sport-Express.
