When you set an objective which at the end of the season you fail to achieve you simply cannot be satisfied when the season draws to a close.
Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin admitted the Gunners cannot be happy with third place, for the very simply reason that at the start of the season they were hoping for more. The midfielder also added how there clearly is a problem which needs to be solved ahead of next season.
Arshavin, 28, also said how he will surely miss this Saturday’s game at the Emirates against Manchester City, but hopes to be back for the final two games of the season against Blackburn, away from home and Fulham.
The Russian said:
We had hoped for more, so we can’t be satisfied with third. I can only say that next season we must try to solve this problem. It exists, so therefore something must be done.
The latest information says I should fully recover within a week, so on Saturday I won’t be able to play.
I hope to be involved in the remaining matches of the season against Blackburn and Fulham.
