Wenger admits speaking to Frenchman before getting Arsenal deal done!

Arsenal club manager, Arsene Wenger has said that Arsenal midfielder Legend Robert Pires recommended that he sign Spanish player Santi Cazorla.

Wenger who is a manager that respects players opinion and strategies decided to listen and bring in the midfielder to the Emirates in 2012.

As quoted on the Arsenal site, Wenger said, “I think I first saw him when he was about 20 or 21. He was not a regular player, but in some games we watched you could see he had talent”

“After that Robert Pires moved to Villarreal and played with him. Sometimes I asked Robert, ‘Are there any good players there?’

“He said to me straight away, ‘Cazorla is a fantastic player’. So Robert was a scout for me! He at least confirmed the impression I already had about Santi.”
