MOSCOW, June 26 (RIA Novosti) - Arsenal forward Andrei Arshavin has parted company with his agent, the player's official website announced on Friday.
Dennis Lachter was regularly quoted by world sports media as Arshavin's protracted, and at times torturous, move to Arsenal from Zenit St. Petersburg dragged on. Arshavin eventually signed for the London club in February.
He has however expressed dissatisfaction with his contract, worth 80,000 pounds ($127,000) a week.
"I have a problem with my contract. Certain nuances emerged linked to taxation and some other things. As a result, I'm getting less money than I expected. It's not critical but I still need to put it right," the player told The Mail on Sunday in May.
However, the Russian international denied that contract problems lay behind his decision.
"This is in no way connected with the drawing up of my contract with Arsenal," Arshavin told Sport Express. "In fact, I would like to express my immense gratitude to Lachter for helping me make the move."
"However, Dennis, who has a newborn son, is living in Israel and can not be close by all the time. It's simpler for me to solve things myself," he said.
