Football: Hleb's in no hurry.

Byline: By BILL MILLS

ALEXANDER HLEB insists he will not be rushed back from his knee injury.

The Arsenal midfielder has been out for the past three weeks after damaging ligaments while on international duty with Belarus.

He is likely to miss the whole of November as well, but has warned Gunners fans that he won't be pushing too hard for a quick return.

Team-mate Thierry Henry also suffered a set-back in his recovery from a groin injury that boss Arsene Wenger admitted had been caused by bringing him back too early.

Hleb said: "I know that I have to be patient and the first thing I need to do is get back to full fitness to reduce the risk of a further injury.

"It's hard knowing that my team-mates are training and playing games while I cannot help them."
