Nick Shpilevski: Alex Hleb to stay in Barcelona


Belarus skipper has decided to stay with the Catalon side and fight for a place in the first XI after talking to his manager. Alex Hleb will stay in Barcelona and fight for a place in the main squad, Hleb's agent Nick Shpilevski told the European Radio for Belarus. After Bercelona defeated Manchester United in the Champions League final, Alexander Hleb said he did not want to play in a team where he is even not on the bench.

“We had a very serious conversation", explains Shpilevski. "We have made a decision to stay in Barcelona".

Shpilevski described Hleb's statements after the match in Rome as pure emotions. As of now, Hleb is ready to continue his career in Spain.

Shpilevski: “Alex is a Barcelona player and will remain a Barcelona player. Alex is mentally prepared to stay in Barcelona and prove his right to be in the first XI".

Shpilevski also said that Hleb is already in Belarus and has joined training ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Andorra.
