Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla claims he’ll leave if club can’t win trophies & acknowledges lack of “winning mentality” [Sport360]
Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla sat down with Sport360 for a very interesting interview this week.
The Spanish star gave his thoughts on why it’s been yet another disappointing season at the Emirates.
Cazorla also claimed he would look elsewhere if Arsenal continue their lack of silverware.
“I want titles and that is why I came to Arsenal,” he says. “Every football player wants to win titles. We’ve gone many years without winning one. And if not, what I’ll look for in my next destination is to have the chance to win.
“I don’t want to close doors, but nowadays I’ve a contract with Arsenal for two more seasons. When I’m turning 31 I’ll evaluate myself and I’ll choose the best option. In which case, I would be delighted to come back [to Spain].”
Santi Cazorla pinpointed the key points of Arsenal’s season with their defeat at Stoke highlighted.
“We’ve been unlucky in several games. We had a lot of chances to win against Manchester United and there was Ozil’s penalty (against Bayern),” he says. “We couldn’t recover after going out against Bayern in the Champions League.
“And the defeat against Stoke finished us. You can’t lose against Stoke if you aspire to be the next champion.
“We haven’t got a winning mentality and we have to believe in ourselves (more). Sometimes you can get used to not fighting, but we can’t do that. Arsenal is and will always be a historic football club, we have to look forward.”
