    Alexander Hleb has confessed that his move from Arsenal to Barcelona last year was a mistake he now regrets.

    The 28-year-old confirmed he is unhappy in Catalonia despite his team's successes in the Spainish league and Europe last season.

    'When you mostly sit on the bench, winning titles brings very little joy, while getting to the last eight of the Champions League with Arsenal was unforgettable,' said the Belarus winger.

    High hopes: Hleb after signing on at Barcelona

    'I regret my move from London, but unfortunately nothing can be done about it now.'

    While Hleb feels he has been poorly treated by Nou Camp boss Pep Guardiola, he showered praise on former manager Arsene Wenger.

    'For me, Wenger was like a father. I consider him one of the best managers in the world.

    'For such a boss one wants to die on the pitch. Arsene managed to create a smashing team with a wonderful atmosphere inside of it.

    'I have no doubts that if Arsenal had the same budget as Barcelona, the Gunners would be among the three best clubs on the planet.'

    Hleb is prepared to stick it out at Barca until the new year, but he has been offered to Inter Milan as part of the swap deal that should see Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic go in the opposite direction.

    I hope he fucks off to Inter and by some miracle they decide to keep him.
    If he wanted to play more, he should have worked harder. If he wanted the fans and press to like him, he should have learned the language and not point blank refuse to attend classes. If he wanted Guardiola to be more fatherly, he should have engaged his fucking brain before having a go at him in three separate interviews with the foreign press.
