Arshavin snatches his first award in England
The Russian player made a flying start to his Arsenal career and scooped more than half the votes in the poll conducted at the clubÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s official website.
The Gunners fans preferred Arshavin to Dutch Robin van Persie, who received 10.9% of the vote and who had previously won four monthly awards in a row. SpainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Manuel Almunia finished third with 9.8%.
Arsenal won all five of the games Arshavin appeared in during March, and the deadline-day signing of the player has already racked up five assists and a world-class goal for joining the club, notes ArsenalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s official website.
