Andrey Arshavin is ready to quit soccer at the end of this season, aged 32. According to The Evening Standard, the footballer has become so disillusioned with the sport as well as the lack of viable alternatives away from Arsenal that he is considering hanging up his boots when his contract ends this summer.
The newspaper added that sources close to the Arsenal squad argue he was played out of position by Wenger too often, frequently starting on the left flank and asked to track back in a manner to which he was unaccustomed.
What do you think? Should Arshavin hang up his boots, or try to find a new lease of life elsewhere perhaps in MLS? Share your opinions below.
