‘Behind the smile, Santi is extremely strong’

Santi Cazorla

Santi Cazorla was a hot topic on Friday after the midfielder gave an interview in Spain detailing his recovery from a long-term ankle injury.


We asked Arsene Wenger for the latest news on his comeback, and this is what he told us:


“I have been in touch with Santi throughout his rehab, and it has been extremely tough and testing for him,” the boss told Arsenal Player.

“If there is one guy who loves football passionately, loves to be on the pitch, and comes in with a smile every day when he is fit, it’s Santi Cazorla, so you know he suffers a lot not to be out there with the ball at his feet.


“He is extremely strong and brave, and behind his smile is a strength you would not guess. He is a very strong character, and everyone at Arsenal wishes him well and we hope to have him back soon.”
