Video: Ex-Arsenal Midfielder Andrey Arshavin Scores Absolute Stunner in Kazakhstan

He was once one of the most revered and highly-rated attacking midfielders on the entire planet, but now Andrey Arshavin is seeing out his playing days in Kazakhstan – and doing a pretty good job by the looks of things.

The former Russia international was once at the centre of one of the Premier League’s most protracted transfers ever, with Arsenal pushing the boat out to sign him for £15 million back in February 2009 from Zenit Saint Petersburg.

He started brightly, and looked like a bargain after scoring all four goals against Liverpool in a famous 4-4 draw at Anfield that year, but couldn’t sustain his form and ended up back at Zenit in 2012.

Now 35, Arshavin plays for FC Kairat Almaty in the Kazakhstan Premier League, and gave supporters a glimpse of the stunning talent he obviously still possesses over the weekend:

Not too bad, eh? And to top things off, that strike sealed a 1-0 win over rivals FK Aktobe.

You never lose it!
