Alexander Hleb has rejoined Belarusian football side FC BATE Borisov for an incredible fifth time in his professional career.
The Belarus international has returned to his boyhood club after a career spent playing football at some of the highest levels.

In between his time spent at BATE, Hleb has played for some of Europe’s biggest clubs including Stuttgart (2000-05, 2009-10), Arsenal (2005-08), Barcelona (2008-09), and Wolfsburg (2011).
Following impressive spells with BATE and Stuttgart, Hleb joined Arsenal in 2005 and went on to make 119 appearances, scoring ten goals.
He left Arsenal for Barcelona in 2008. The midfielder spent just one season at Camp Nou, but it was a successful one – he ended up collecting La Liga and Champions League winners’ medals.
Hleb has been named Belarusian footballer of the year six times in his career (2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008), making 77 appearances for his country and scoring six goals.
He returns to BATE following short stints at two Turkish clubs, Konyaspor and Genclerbirligi.
