Arshavin scoffs at Arsenal exit claims

Arsenal star Andrey Arshavin has rubbished speculation he could leave the Emirates.

He told Sport Express: "I do not consider it necessary to comment on [the rumours].

"It is just not a topic for conversation.

"I spent a week in St. Petersburg training with my former club - Zenit," Arshavin explained. "Everybody was quite kind to me. I cannot say that I communicated a lot with anyone just a bit with everybody.

"I hope that these trainings in my former club would be useful. In any case they were better than a week of doing nothing.

"I don't think that the attitude of people in St. Petersburg has changed when I left. As far as I can see they like me equally even though I am playing in a different team now."
