Spain beat Germany 1-0 to win Euro 2008, but what price are they to go on and become World Champions in South Africa in 2010?

Alexander Hleb has blamed a difference of opinion with manager Arsene Wenger as his reason for wanting to leave Arsenal.

The midfielder is hoping to finalise a move to Barcelona in the next few days and he explained that he had notifed Wenger last season about his desire to leave.

“My view of football and Wenger’s didn’t coincide at all,” Hleb told The Daily Mirror.

“I raised the subject of leaving with Wenger twice before the end of the season.
“It’s not easy for me to leave and I think he was upset about it.

“But you should ask him. It may turn out that he’s happy about it.”

Hleb has also criticised midfield colleague Cesc Fabregas and has accused the Spaniard of being ‘selfish’.

“With scoring opportunities he (Fabregas) is more selfish than I am. Given the chance to shoot he always goes for it – unlike me,” Hleb added.

“I don’t know where I will play next season. It’s being negotiated with two clubs and will be decided soon.

“I would prefer to move to Barcelona.”
