Alex Hleb

This week we are in conversation with mercurial midfielder Alex Hleb, who spent three years at the club between 2005 and 2008. Alex tells us about his first impressions of the club when joining from Stuttgart, and the relationship he had with Arsène Wenger. He relives the heartache of the 2006 Champions League final, and his friendship with Mathieu Flamini, Cesc Fabregas and Tomas Rosicky. But most revealing of all is his sorrow and regret at leaving the club for Barcelona, a move he still cannot comprehend himself.
