Alexis Sanchez feels “very proud” to be part of the Arsenal team and privileged to play alongside the “spectacular” Santi Cazorla.
The Chilean international has had a fine first season in English football, scoring 22 goals and being nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award. And according to Alexis, his new team-mates are even better than he expected.
“When I arrived at the club I didn't know the players that well, but I was really surprised by everyone's quality,” he told Arsenal Player.
“I am not saying this just because it's my obligation to do it as a club player. Every Arsenal footballer has amazing quality. Being part of a team like this makes me very proud. I am willing to win many titles here.
“Santi Cazorla is a spectacular player. You never know whether he will kick the ball with his right or left foot. Also, he moves with short but quick strides, which is a remarkable trademark too.
“Although I knew about his quality, playing alongside him makes me very happy.”
