Hiddink tells Tottenham's Pavlyuchenko to speak English
Hiddink told Russian newspaper Express Sport that "Generally, Arshavin can't be stopped; he is proactive and always wants to improve,” said the former Chelsea boss. "’Pavlo’ is a little different. He knows that I like him very much, but I always say to Roman that he should not succumb to his inherent tendencies of complacency."
"At Euro 2008 he was as sharp as a dagger,” Hiddink continued. "In those matches he won universal respect. If he wants to be successful in his career, he must maintain this approach."
"With Arshavin we have spoken a few times on the phone and I would say that his colloquial English is already perfect. On the phone you can only count on your vocabulary - gesturing is no good - and Arshavin copes with this perfectly."
