Cazorla in his own words. By Galen
We had a great end to the season with our FA victory. But while 95% of our players are going on about us winning the title, Sanchez and Cazorla seem to be the only players who are not boasting about like kids. Sanchez called the season ‘a disapointment’ while Cazorla was asked at the unveiling of the new Kit if Arsenal can win the title? He replied: “If we buy a couple of players who can win the title”. Cazorla may have offended a few of his teammates with the latest interview, but you can tell he wants to win. In fact I am so glad he said this things.
Cazorla said when asked about Giroud and Welbeck: ‘Yes of course [Arsenal should sign a striker] because Danny had an injury,’ said Cazorla.
‘We had only Giroud up front. It’s better if we sign a new striker for the team and for the club.
‘We want to be more regular. Last season we lost so many points against small teams at home – Hull City for example – and if we want to win the league we can’t lose those points.’
Cazorla clearly thinks Arsenal need more options and when the interviewer asked him what he thinks about Theo Walcott he said clearly that the England international is not a true striker. “It’s a tough decision and it’s down to Mr Wenger to make these decisions. My only hope is that whoever is chosen will be somebody who can pump up the level of the team. When it comes to a position or who in particular we might need somebody in Theo Walcott’s area. He’s not necessarily a true, true striker so we might need somebody in his area,”
Cazorla clearly believes we need more than Giroud or Theo to be our striking options. He may have upset some of his teammates but only the truth can set you free….
Cazorla was then asked about Cavani or Higuain Joining Arsenal? He said: “The truth is that speaking about Cavani and Higuain is speaking about goals.”They are two players who have a spectacular career. I do not know whether the rumours about them joining Arsenal are true but I know both of them from watching them playing and with Pipa [Higuain] I have a good relationship. I wish them all the best if they come to Arsenal.”
If our best midfielder thinks we need a world class striker why don’t our fans see that? Why do people continue debate and mention the likes of Theo of Giroud or Welbeck? They are good squad players and good rotation options. Every squad needs these type of players. But every squad also needs a top-drawer type of striker. A guy with the fear factor. Just look at Costa’s impact on Chelsea and Aguero on City. Cazorla is speaking the truth….
