(GSM) – Andrey Arshavin has dismissed fresh speculation linking him with Barcelona and insisted he is happy at Arsenal.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was unhappy after reports emerged with Arshavin claiming a move to Barcelona “would be the peak of my career”.
But the former Zenit St Petersburg striker, 28, warned the Arsenal fans not to read too much into such stories.
Arsenal midfielder answered, “I am often translated wrongly.
“If I talk to the English press, there is no problem, but when I say something in Russia, some special news agency takes it, translates it and sells these quotes.
“During the process of interpretation they translate my words as they see fit.
“I find this unpleasant. People might think I said something that, in fact, I never said,” he convinced.
Arshavin further said, “I respect the club and I am happy that I am a part of it.
“I am very grateful to the Arsenal fans, who love me,” he concluded.
