London, Oct 3(ANI): Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reckons that striker Andrey Arshavin can become a Gunners' legend and believes that he has the capability to guide the club to glory.I love Arshavin because he has things that are just down to him. He is an intelligent player and he looks like he is a shrewd street player because he creates something always in unexpected situations," The Sun quoted Wenger, as saying.

"He has a big challenge in front of him. He made St Petersburg win and, if he makes Arsenal win, he'll become an all-time great," he added.

Wenger also said that Arshavin, who led Zenit St Petersburg to the Russian title and UEFA Cup win, has a real challenge in front of him to become a great player with the Gunners.

"That's the real challenge he faces and I am convinced he has all the potential to do it. He's a leader and a character. He has something specific to him that he uses well - a low centre of gravity, great pace and tricky dribble," Wenger said.

"He uses all that he has in the locker in an intelligent way - and don't forget he is a winner as well," he added. (ANI)
