Alexander Hleb has thanked Arsene Wenger for helping him win his "dream" move to Barcelona as he revealed family life was a big factor in his decision to leave Arsenal.

Hleb, who moved to the Catalan club in a deal worth at least £11.8million earlier this month, hinted at his unhappiness with life off the pitch in "hectic" London.

But he likened Wenger to a father and called Cesc Fabregas his "best friend" as he repeated his denial of critical comments attributed to him before his move. The Belarus midfielder was reported to have branded Fabregas "selfish" and spoken of tactical disagreements with the Arsenal boss.
