Football: Arshavin Joins FC Kuban

Russian forward Andrey Arshavin has joined FC Kuban Krasnodar after it became obvious the Zenit coach does not want him to play any longer.

      Arshavin signed a one-year contract with the southern team that finished 10th in Russia’s top league last year.

      Earlier, he complained about the amount of time he spent on the bench in St Petersburg.

      “When Hulk and Danny are fine, I don't get a chance,” he was quoted as saying.

      He also added that it would be difficult to regain shape if the situation goes on like this.

      Arshavin came back to Zenit St Petersburg after a frustrating stint at Arsenal where after a successful start he fell out with Arsene Wenger over his deteriorating shape and had to spend most of his time on the bench. He scored 30 goals in 133 matches for Arsenal.

      Arshavin left Zenit in 2009 after helping the squad win the 2008 UEFA Cup and a stellar performance at Euro 2008, where Russia won bronze.

      However, Arshavin has been in a poor form this season, so he was dropped to the Arsenal reserves a week before his leaving the club.
