Spaniard makes shock Arsenal transfer announcement

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has discussed his departure from Malaga.

The 30-year-old playmaker has been a key member of Arsene Wenger’s side since his £15m move, but has apologised for leaving the Spanish outfit.

“I left because the club needed money,” Cazorla said on the Sky Sports website.

“Arsenal was a good opportunity, but Malaga wasn’t stable and it wasn’t clear where they were headed.

“I know that in Malaga lots of people haven’t forgiven me for the way I left.

“When I signed for Arsenal, everything happened so quick, I had to go to London.

“Arsenal had already started their pre-season and I had to go over there for a medical, and then I had to go to Holland to start to train with the squad.

“That all meant that I couldn’t go to Malaga to hold a press conference to say goodbye to everyone face to face.

“In the end, I could only write a letter in which I expressed my gratitude and my affection for the club. I know a lot of people didn’t like that.

“I’d like to apologise for not being able to say goodbye properly as I know that would have been the best thing. It still bothers me that I didn’t get to do that for the fans.”
