Arsenal Legend Robert Pires Praises ‘Brilliant’ Cazorla by AM
Arsenal legend Robert Pires believes Santi Cazorla is at the right club to make most of his wonderful talent and the start against Sunderland was only a trailer of things to come. In an interview to the Official Arsenal Magazine, the Frenchman who played alongside Cazorla during his stint at Villarreal till 2010, said –
“Santi called me when the offer from the Club arrived and I told him that it was the perfect club for him”
“The way the team plays will suit him perfectly and he is the kind of player Arsène loves too. He is a very exciting player, very gifted technically with both feet. He has an impressive creative touch and he can play in the centre or on the wings.”
“His vision and the quality of his passing is brilliant but he can also take people on. Despite still being quite young, he has big experience with the Spanish national team and has also played in the Champions League.”
“Finally, he has a very good mentality and is a real team player. He will need a bit of time to settle but I’m convinced he will adapt very quickly and will be a great signing for Arsenal.”
If Cazorla turns out to be even close to Robert Pires himself, then the Gunners will be in for treat.
