'I cried when I talked to Arsene' - Hleb still doesn't understand why he left Arsenal for Barcelona


The former Belarus star won the treble with the Catalan side, but he feels he should have stayed in north London

Former Arsenal star Alexander Hleb says it was a mistake to leave the club for Barcelona.

Hleb joined the Gunners from Stuttgart in 2005 and spent three seasons in north London, making 130 appearances and reaching the Champions League final with the club.

The former attacking midfielder was not able to secure a regular spot in Barca's starting XI as he featured just 36 times for the Spanish giants and was loaned out to Stuttgart, Birmingham and Wolfsburg before his contract was terminated by mutual consent.
