The Gunners finished third in the Premier League and only reached the Champions League quarter-finals as they endured another season without silverware.

Arshavin also lavished praise on champions Chelsea, and said watching his compatriot Yuri Zhirkov lift the Premier League trophy compounded his misery.

"There was nothing special last season for me to think back about. The season was normal - even pitiful," Arshavin told The Sun.

"I am happy for Yuri Zhirkov, who won the Premier League with Chelsea.

"They deserved the trophy, as they were the strongest during the season."
