It was revealed that the Russian’s son is named ‘Arseny Arshavin’, after legendary manager Arsene Wenger, as he was named the player of the week for Barcelona’s academy.
Arshavin played for the north London club from between 2009 and 2013, making 145 appearances and scoring 31 goals across all competitions (via Transfermarkt).
The 38-year-old was once wanted by the Catalan giants back in 2008, however Zenit Saint Petersburg refused to sell him at the time (via The Guardian).
Arshavin’s standout performance in the famous red and white proved to be away to Liverpool in April 2004 as the 38-year-old scored four goals the 4-4 draw.
The fans were falling in love with the name of Arshavin’s son as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
Yes. Love it.
