Santi Cazorla Keen to Make Fairytale Return to Arsenal Under Arteta

Santi Cazorla, the beloved former Arsenal player, is currently focused on guiding his boyhood club, Real Oviedo, to a promotion in the Spanish second division play-offs. However, amidst the excitement, Cazorla has hinted at a possible return to Arsenal in the future.

During a recent virtual press conference, Cazorla expressed his admiration for Arsenal, a club where he spent six successful years, winning two FA Cups and becoming a fan favorite. He also revealed that his former teammate and current Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has shown interest in having him join the coaching staff, praising Cazorla’s energy and knowledge of the game.

While Cazorla is fully committed to Oviedo at the moment, he appreciates that Arsenal has always welcomed him back with open arms. The midfielder acknowledges the special bond he shares with the club and the fans, making a return to Arsenal a possibility once he hangs up his boots.

As Cazorla looks to cap off his playing career with a promotion for Oviedo, he reflects on the joy of playing in front of friends and family and carrying the responsibility of representing his hometown club. Despite facing challenges with injuries this season, Cazorla’s influence on and off the pitch has been invaluable to Oviedo’s success in the play-offs.

The prospect of an Asturias derby between Oviedo and Sporting Gijon in the final adds an extra layer of excitement to the play-offs, with Cazorla hoping to bring joy to the hearts of the people from his hometown. As he navigates the final stages of his career, Cazorla remains focused on the task at hand but leaves the door open for a potential return to Arsenal, where he left an indelible mark during his time at the club.
