Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla sent a consolation message to the skipper of his former side Villarreal following the horrific injury suffered by Mateo Musacchio.
Mucho animo a mi amigo @MateoMusacchio5 espero q sea lo menos grave posible crack un fuerte abrazo y mucha fuerza fenómeno

The Argentine defender dislocated his left ankle and fractured his fibula in Villarreal’s 1-1 draw against La Liga side Getafe on Sunday.
Cazorla is highly regarded by the Yellow Submarines, spending eight years with El Madrigal, between 2003-2011 before moving to Malaga following their billionaire takeover.

Coincidently, Cazorla missed all four of our Champions League ties against Villarreall in 2006 and 2009 respectively as we progressed on both occasions against a side managed by Manuel Pellegrini.
This season, the Spanish magician has reinvented himself as an all-action midfielder, being positioned next to the destructive Francis Coquelin in a double-pivot.
Getting stuck in as well as keeping us ticking over when in possession of the ball, Cazorla has become the complete midfielder. Had the PFA individual awards only taken into account the calendar year of 2015, he would have certainly had a case of being named as a favourite.
