Gençlerbirliği midfielder Alexander Hleb has revealed that he misses playing for Arsenal.
“I had a great time at Arsenal, we had a great team spirit and were a fantastic team before I left for Barcelona, I miss those days,” Hleb was quoted as saying in the Hürriyet.
Hleb joined Arsenal for €15 million, on a four-year contract in 2005.
The 33-year-old scored 10 goals and provided 16 assists in 130 games for the Gunners before joining Barcelona.
Hleb later joined Barcelona and had several other stints before joining Konyaspor.
The former Ballet dancer parted ways with Konyaspor in January after having his contract terminated by mutual consent.
The 33-year-old fell out of favour with Konyaspor manager Aykut Kocaman and had been left out of the squad before his January move.
Hleb joined the Anatolian Eagles from BATE Borisov in January 2014 and made 15 appearances in the first half of the season.
Gençlerbirliği signed Hleb on a free contract until the end of the season. The Belarus international midfielder has one goal and two assists in 13 appearances for the Ankara based side.
