Santi Cazorla is delighted with Arsenal career so far
Santi Cazorla enjoying his first season at Arsenal
Arsenal midfielder, Santi Cazorla, is said to be delighted with the start he has made in English football with Arsenal.
The Spaniard has scored eleven goals already for his new side, becoming only the second person to reach double figures in his debut season, the first being Thierry Henry. As well as his impressive goal-scoring record, Cazorla has been awarded with three player of the months awards for Arsenal and has received many plaudits from players, fans, pundits and his manager, Arsene Wenger.
The playmaker has adapted to English football a lot quicker than most foreign players do and his recent form has been very impressive after scoring the winner against Sunderland and scoring a match-winning brace against Aston Villa.
This season is also the first time that the player has not had a winter break to rest, but he feels that he has adapted to England very well.
Cazorla told Arsenal player: "I think I've had a positive seven months personally as I have been able to come to a team like Arsenal and play in a great league like the Premier League.
"On the pitch, we have definitely had our ups and downs; there have been good times and bad times.
"I think that the team has lacked a bit of consistency and sometimes we have made mistakes that have cost us dearly. Removing these from our game will help us improve in the future.
"But it hasn’t been difficult adapting to Arsenal’s style of play or even to the Premier League.
"It is a bit different to La Liga in Spain but I’ve adapted very well and I think Arsenal’s style of play has made it a lot easier for me.
"I was expecting to come into a league that would be a bit more physical, a bit quicker, and had a greater intensity than what I was used to. I was prepared for that, especially the physical side, so I don’t think it was hard for me to adapt."
The 28-year-old joined Arsenal back in the summer after leaving Spanish side, Malaga. Cazorla made history at the Spanish side after helping them reach the Champions League for the first time in the club's history and despite having great moments at the club, he is very happy that he moved on.
He said: "That was the leap I wanted to make. I wanted to go to a big club and an historic club like Arsenal.
"I’m happy here. The Club’s influence is enormous and it’s incredible that it has so many fans around the world because that means it really is a massive club. Generally, I’m happy with everything here because the Club treats its players so well."
