Santi Cazorla says ‘football is life‘ to him and something is not right when he doesn’t enjoy his football. The midfielder joined from Malaga in 2012 and has been a huge hit among the fans since his arrival. The Spaniard is not only admired for his skill on the ball but also for his amicable nature on and off the pitch as well.
Cazorla believes that it is important to have a good atmosphere around him and the team. Santi revealed that he always tries to be happy and wants to make his team members and fans happy as well.
Cazorla also spoke of the FA Cup final victory over Hull City in May and says it’s one of his best moments. We all know Santi’s contribution in that game, he brought Arsenal back in the game with a fantastic free kick after we were down by two goals in the final.
For me the most important thing is to enjoy myself when I play. Football is my life and if I don’t enjoy the game then I will have a problem in my career. I’ve been playing football since I was seven and I always enjoyed playing with my brother and friends on the street. Now I enjoy playing with my team-mates and that is the most important thing in football. I am very lucky to play big games in the Premier League and Champions League.
Football is my job and I always play for the fans and the club. It’s always important for the players to feel happy on the pitch, in training and in the dressing room. I try every day to be happy for my team-mates. Sometimes it’s good to always be happy and sometimes it’s not that good.
Having a good atmosphere around the club is important for me and the team. It’s the same on the pitch – if you train happy, you will play happy. Winning the FA Cup was one of the best moments of my career and I always thank my fans because I love the song they sing for me. They mean a lot to me and I hope we can win another trophy for them this year.
We really hope Santi that you guys win another trophy this year. Champions league would be fine. But Santi you haven’t been bringing the smile as you once did, is it fatigue, bad period or John Terryish nightmare. Whatever it is we are waiting for you to make us happy again and bringing in some early Christmas presents.
