Want-away midfielder Hleb hits out at Arsenal
Arsenal midfielder Alexander Hleb has hit out at manager Arsene Wenger and team-mate Cesc Fabregas as he attempts to engineer a move to Barcelona.
The Belarus international has been seemingly on the brink of a move to Serie A or La Liga all summer but has yet to actually leave the Emirates Stadium.
And Hleb has revealed a rift with both Wenger and team-mate Fabregas.
'My view of how I should be playing didn't coincide with the manager's,' he is quoted as saying in The Sun.
'I told him last season I wanted to leave and think he was quite upset about it. But ask him. It may turn out he's happy to see me go.
'I don't know where I'll be next season but I'd prefer Barcelona. It is being negotiated and, hopefully, will be decided soon.'
Hleb has also branded Fabregas 'selfish'.
'When we get scoring opportunities, Fabregas is much more selfish than me,' he said. 'Given a chance to shoot, he always goes for it - unlike me.'
