Hleb: No regrets leaving Arsenal for Barca

Barcelona's Belarus midfielder Aleksandr Hleb does not regret moving to the Primera Liga club despite playing a limited role since joining from Arsenal at the end of last season.

The 27-year-old made more than 85 league appearances for the Gunners from 2005-08 before departing for the Camp Nou for £11.8 million.

But the Belarusian has struggled to establish himself in Pep Guardiola's first-team, making just 12 La Liga outings as the Catalans soared to the top of the table. "Adapting here has not been easy," the 27-year-old told a news conference. "I'm in a squad in which almost all the players could be in the starting eleven and getting playing time is difficult.

"It's a new experience for me and one I have to learn from."
