Hleb believes in Barcelona future

Asked about his situation at Barcelona, Barcelona attacker and Belarusian international Alexander Hleb (27) has unconfirmedly said to journalists in his home-country that he still believes he can prove himself at Barcelona:

"I've spoken with Guardiola about my situation and my role in the squad. I've told him how I thought about it but the content of our conversation stays between us.

I've expressed to him my firm desire to demonstrate that Barcelona didn't make a mistake by signing me. I want to settle down in the team and I want to achieve great things in the Spanish league.

Henry, Messi and Iniesta are my direct rivals while competing for a spot in the team. They are three absolute quality players, but that’s hardly any consolation to accept that I am a substitute. If I were 20 years old, I would have time to wait for my chance, but I'm almost 28 years old and things are different then.

At Stuttgart and Arsenal, I also had problems in the beginning, so I’m not going mad. It's not a situation that is new to me and I know how to handle it. And I've not started to have doubts about myself either but it is only logical that I'm not happy. If I wouldn't want more playing time, I wouldn't be a good professional."

He has to improve very much if he wants to stay...this season we have seen only little amount of his skills...Makes me wonder,why Guardiola doesn't try him in midfield position
