Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak has rubbished reports fellow Russian and Arsenal forward Andrey Arshavin is set to retire from football.


Speculation also surrounds Pogrebnyak's future, with the striker being linked with a summer exit and a potential return to Russia if Reading are relegated from the Premier League. But the 29-year-old insists his focus is on the Royals' battle for survival, with their hopes of avoiding the drop appearing increasingly bleak. "Everything will be decided by the end of the season," he added. "Believe me, I don't have time to think about my contract. All of my thoughts are about the Reading games. "I think we have very little chance (of avoiding relegation) but we'll fight until the end."
