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.”
