Andrei Arshavin: I'm happy at Arsenal

Russian forward Andrei Arshavin has admitted he is a Barcelona fan but has sought to deny suggestions that he is unhappy at Arsenal.

Arshavin has sporadically declared his admiration for Barcelona ever since joining Arsenal in February 2009 and said in April that representing the Catalan club would represent the "peak of my career".

Having also recently described Arsenal's season as "pitiful", it has been suggested that Arshavin is feeling restless at Emirates Stadium, and his bold public statements have left a number of supporters frustrated with the club's record signing.

But Arshavin has attempted to clarify the situation by stating that although he admires Barca, he is happy to represent Arsene Wenger's side.

"As a child I supported Barcelona, I do not deny that," Arshavin wrote on his official website. "Actually I continue to root for Barca in the Spanish championship.

"As for the English championship, I've always liked Arsenal, so when I had an opportunity to join this club, I happily agreed. So I've never seen myself as a player of any other English club. Again, I am a Gunner, and I am satisfied with everything."
