Andrey Arshavin: One More Chance

Have you noticed that Andrey Arshavin hasn’t been in the Arsenal line-up lately? Were you wondering what happened to him?

Congratulations. You’re as good as we are at paying attention to what’s going on.

Hmm. This is Russian football talent, yes? You have our interest… Images: nikeinc.com.

Unbeknownst to us, Mr Arshavin went out on loan to former club Zenit St Petersburg back in February, but don’t imagine for a moment that the crazy has abated simply because he’s back on home soil.

When he’s not receiving citrus fruit in exchange for minor car accidents, Andrey’s casting his astute eye over young Russian players with a view to giving them the opportunity of a lifetime. “The Chance” is a Nike project searching for talented diamonds in the non-elite rough. Those selected will form an elite sixteen man squad to train and compete with academy sides from across the world.

A note to AA: Kudos on keeping busy, you’ve got that down pat. But on the reals, you’ve got maybe four or five more days before we request photos and a detailed itinerary of what Yulia and the kids have been up to as well.
