Tips to Rafa & Fergie From a Very Unusual Source

Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin has Provided some Scouting Tips for the rival Liverpool Manager Rafa Benitez and Sir Alex Ferguson.

It seems Arshavin is trying get his Zenit St Petersburg teammate's in the Premier League World.

Well we doubt if both the managers will be impressed by the helping hand from Arshavin.

Arsenal midfielder Andrey Arshavin has tipped Liverpool’s Rafael Benitez to sign his former Zenit St Petersburg teammate Aleksandr Anyukov and hinted that Sir Alex Ferguson should look towards Igor Akinfeev if he wants to replace Edwin van der Sar in the Manchester United goal. Speaking ahead of Russia’s World Cup qualification match with Finland, the 28-year-old playmaker fielded questions from local press about life in England and also which players he felt could follow him to the Premier League.
“Given that Van der Sar will not be around forever, Ferguson is most in need of a goalkeeper,” Arshavin stated.
“I therefore advise him to sign Akinfeev…and Liverpool? Perhaps Anyukov.”
Anyukov, a right sided wing-back, has been a favourite of Guus Hiddink in the Russian national team for several years as well as accumulating both domestic and UEFA Cup titles with Zenit St Petersburg. A steely competitor, the 26-year-old is known for his runs and effervescent wing-play.

Hope we do get to hear some interesting comments from Rafa and Fergie
