Andrei Arshavin, remember him? The jolly-faced Russian winger graced English shores back in 2009 when he joined Arsenal in January of that year after a sensational Euro 2008 campaign.
He arrived in the Premier League as one of the most sought-after talents in world football, a diminutive winger with the ability to terrorise defenders and find the back of the net on a regular basis.
Sadly, this description did not come to fruition and sooner rather than later, the little Russian was labelled a flop and shipped back to his home country.

He now plays in Kazakhstan, a country not famed for its footballing ability, but Arshavin has added a little bit of magic to the domestic division with one of the finest goals you will ever see.
The solo strike will certainly rank high in the former Arsenal man's personal quota of goals, but the slaloming run is certainly a piece of true magic.
The 35-year-old's strike was the second in a 3-1 win for his side Kairat as they saw off Taraz in the Kazakhstan Premier League.
The sumptuous back heel first touch, the composure to shift the ball onto his favoured right foot and a cultured chip to expose a wayward goalkeeper, add up to one hell of a goal.
One cliche really does spring to mind watching this goal, form is temporary but class is permanent. Well done Arshavin.
