Mikel Arteta can't help breaking into a smile when discussing Santi Cazorla.
Our former Spain international played his final game for Villarreal on Sunday night, and our head coach said the 35-year-old is a unique character on and off the field.
"My opinion of Santi cannot be any higher," Arteta said. "Personally, first, with the type of person he is and what he brings to that dressing room, but then also as a player for what he did throughout his career.
"About the coaching role and the future, we will see what happens. Right now, he's just finished [at Villarreal] so let him enjoy that moment and we'll see what happens in the future."
