It's been quite some time since Andrey Arshavin's questions and answer sessions were this good. For those of you not all that familiar with arshavin.eu, Andrey takes some of the most ridiculous issues head on and gives his time to ponder, solve and reject some of the best questions a footballer can be asked.
Recently he has tackled the rise of the skinhead population in Russia.
Andrey, what do you think about skinheads? It’s just their number in Russia
reached 90 000 ... and more and more often they begin to kill black people,
Chinese, Jews and other people of non-Russian appearance ..
AA: Only God gives us life and only He can take it away.
Look at how easily he lets down an 11 year old fan by rejecting his invitation to come to his home town.
Andrey, I am your fan, I am 11 years old, my name is Daniyal, I live in
Makhachkala .... my request - please come to Makhachkala, we
will be very happy .. and I think Roberto Carlos will be glad to see you, you also can have some rest by the Caspian sea) All the best in your career, thank you in advance!
AA: I’ve been to Makhachkala many times. Thank you for your invitation.
Here he explains how he feels when he sees young boys wearing his tops.
Hello, Andrey! When I see our boys in Samara wearing T-shirts
with your name on them, I feel proud that they respect the Russian football players and think about them as an example for myself. And what do you think about them? What do you feel when you see a young guy in "your" t-shirt? Thank you)
AA: I feel glad when I see people wearing T-shirts with my name. If
people buy this product, it means that they are not indifferent to the way I play football.
He never scoffs at the simple questions neither.
Andrey, when you first came to the airport and your flight
got canceled because of the fog, you were talking on the phone in the airport parking lot. Do you remember this moment?
AA: Yes, I remember.
I would love to see this in Tv press conference form, make it happen Andrey.
