“Of course” Santi Carzola reveals his prefered new position at Arsenal amid rumors of a return

“Of course” Santi Carzola reveals his prefered new position at Arsenal amid rumors of a return

Santi Cazorla has admitted that he would like to return to Arsenal in order to assist his friend and former teammate Mikel Arteta.

Cazorla spent six years at Arsenal after joining the club in 2012, where he developed a close relationship with Arteta.

Being a fellow Spaniard, Arteta assisted his compatriot in settling into the club and country.

He is currently the manager of Arsenal and is doing an excellent job, as the team is currently atop the Premier League table, whereas Cazorla is finishing his playing career in Qatar.

The 37-year-old has not yet decided what he will do next, but he is certain he will return to Arsenal.

“Of course I would like to come back,” he told the Daily Mail.

“I have to wait if the club thinks about me, if I can help in something – as a coach or a sporting director.”

He’s grateful for the help he obtained from Arteta and his wife when he first joined Arsenal and now wants to repay the favour.

“When I arrived at Arsenal, I didn’t speak English – nothing!” said Cazorla.

“I remember on the first day he was there to welcome me and after that, he was very important every day.

“They helped my family so much so I want to say: Mikel, thank you.”

Cazorla only won FA Cups during a largely disappointing period for Arsenal, but the midfielder is confident that Arteta will restore the club’s glory days.

“They are doing very well, they have very good young players: [Bukayo] Saka, [Gabriel] Martinelli, [Martin] Odegaard. We have an amazing future,” he stated.

“It’s normal they needed time because after [Arsene] Wenger it’s a little bit difficult to try to keep the success. But I think Mikel is the best option for Arsenal: he knows the club, he loves this club and he knows the mentality.”
