Santi Cazorla says Arsenal’s full backs play a “pivotal” role with the attacking width they provide the team.
However, Cazorla says their tendency to drift inside makes it even more important for the likes of Kieran Gibbs and Bacary Sagna to offer support out wide.
“I believe that full backs have a pivotal role in our team,” Cazorla told Arsenal Player. “We don’t have pure wingers.
“Perhaps Theo Walcott is the most natural winger in the squad. He likes to be on the wing to make use of his speed, but apart from him we don’t have natural wingers.
“Our ball possessions are long but they can break through by surprise. That’s why full backs are really important for our team. You can see that every game.”
