“When we get scoring opportunities, Fabregas is much more selfish than me. Given a chance to shoot, he always goes for it — unlike me.”
That sounds very much like a compliment to me and it's most certainly not a 'pop' at Fabregas, it's a statement of fact at worst. Hleb's natural tendency to avoid directness at every opportunity has been his downfall at Arsenal resulting in his appalling goalscoring record.
“My view of how I should be playing didn’t coincide with the manager’s. I told him last season I wanted to leave and think he was quite upset about it. But ask him. It may turn out he’s happy to see me go."
I am sure Arsene wanted Hleb to be more direct and at the beginning of last season it looked like Hleb might have turned over a new leaf, alas it didn't last long before the endless fancy turns replaced the snapshots. Hleb is probably telling the truth in that Arsene was upset about one of his players being such a resistant little twerp, and like us fans, he may well end up being happy to see the back of Hleb after such an embarrassing protracted affair.
The Sun's standards of journalism are rather low, they have tried to manipulate a 'Shocker' of a story with some very bland quotes and made themselves look rather foolish in the process. There's no doubt that the club will be very happy to see the back of Alex Hleb, but it's still rather sad that a player with so much ability has ended up engineering a move away from the club in such a fashion having wasted his talent on the pitch.
