Andrey Arshavin wants to be remembered as one of football's magicians.
 
So far in his career the midfielder has captained his nation, won the UEFA Cup with Zenit St Petersburg and scored four goals in one match.
 
But Arshavin's ambition hasn't been quelled and he told Arsenal TV Online's Spotlight programme how he wants to be remembered.
 
"I want to win the Champions League," he said.
 
"[When I retire] I want to be remembered as a small Russian guy who did some magic things where people did not understand how he did it."
 
However, the Russian midfielder believes performances can be hampered if players are too concerned about the expectations of fans and the media.
 
"If you are focused on that you cannot give a good performance," he said.
 
"You cannot give a good performance because you think about how you look for people. I think it disturbs you."
 
Arsenal TV Online subscribers can see Arshavin's Spotlight interview in full as part of our Friday Night Live line-up this week.
