Arshavin admits he has been average for Arsenal

Arsenal forward Andrey Arshavin believes that he has been average since he made his £15m move from Zenit St. Petersburg in January 2009, The Daily Mail reports.

The Russia captain is Arsenal’s record signing and has made 122 appearances for the Gunners, scoring 30 goals. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger brought Arshavin in following excellent displays in Euro 2008, but the Russian has failed to live up to the hype that surrounded him.

Arshavin still has 18 months left on his deal at the Emirates Stadium, but rumours suggest that he may not see out the deal and could make a move away from Arsenal in January or next summer. The 30 year old provided an honest assessment of his Arsenal form and believes that the individual brilliance he has done has not equated to good performances.

‘I think my performances for Arsenal have been average. I’ve done some good things, but I don’t assess my game on goals or assists – I look at the whole picture’, Arshavin said.
