Andrey Arshavin's Son Is Named After Former Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger

Former Arsenal man Andiry Arshavin's son is named after legendary boss Arsene Wenger and it's hilarious.

Arshavin played for 'The Gunners' between 2009 and 2013 and scored 31 goals in 144 games.

But it seems that former boss Wenger did leave a big impact on the Russian.

That's because his son is called Arseny Arshavin and is bossing it in Barcelona's 'La Masia' academy

Fans on Twitter reacted to the news and also commented on how much Arseny looks like the former Russia international.

Interestingly it seems that he is on Team Messi at La Masia.

Perhaps this means that we'll be seeing another Arshavin bless the world stage in a few years time.

The name Arshavin will bring many fond memories for Arsenal fans.

The Russian midfielder signed for Arsenal from Zenit St Petersburg in 2009 and enjoyed a prolific few years at the Emirates.

One key standout involved the diminutive attacker scoring four goals against Liverpool at Anfield in a thrilling 4-4 draw.

It was a mesmeric performance and Arsenal fans thought they had a potentially world class player on their hands.

But his Arsenal career seemed to stagnate in the final few years.

Wenger constantly moved him onto the wings from his preferred central position and it disrupted the Russian's form.

It culminated in him being booed as he came onto the pitch as a substitution for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in a Premier League game against Sunderland.

Although the booing was for 'The Ox' going off, it showed the decline that the Russian endured at the Emirates.

It is lovely to see his former boss has made an impact on him.
