Hleb: I almost quit Arsenal

Alex Hleb has revealed how he wanted to quit after his first season at Arsenal.

"The first year in England was hell, I felt lonely," said Hleb.

"I went to see Arsene Wenger and told him 'Sorry, I am simply not good enough'.

"But he told me I was a good player and that's why he bought me. It helped a lot."
