Our very own Spanish magician Santiago Cazorla is preparing to face lowly Brighton in Sundays FA Cup Fourth-round tie this weekend, but he is not only thinking about getting in the fraw for the ext round, he wants to see Arsenal go on to lift the trophy at Wembley again.
“It’s similar [to the Copa del Rey] but the FA Cup here is very important for every club,” Santi said on Arsenal.com. “It’s a big, big trophy for all the teams here, and in Spain the Copa del Rey is the same.
“I have very good memories of last season’s final and it was a very good moment for me and for the team. It was my first trophy with the club and I want to get another one this year.
“I think [the free-kick against Hull] was very important because we were losing 2-0 and I could help the team. At half-time it’s different when you get a goal back.”
“I don’t think there is more pressure this year,” Santi concluded. “We want to win this competition again and this is a very good opportunity for us. We need to play against Brighton away and we can repeat this year with another trophy for the fans and the club.”
All Arsenal fans would love to see the team back at Wembley for another big occasion, but please Santi, please don’t make us suffer like last ear by going 2-0 down quite so quickly!
