Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hailed his in-form attacking midfield maestro Santi Cazorla following the Gunners playmaker’s sublime form.
The Spain international was fantastic in the heart of Arsenal’s midfield at the Etihad, where Wenger’s side smashed the Premier League defending champions Manchester City 2-0 on Sunday.
Cazorla scored the first goal of the clash and also assisted the second which gave the north London side the win over Pellegrini’s men.
However, ahead of Arsenal’s trip to Brighton and Hove Albion in the FA Cup on Sunday, Wenger had nothing but praise for the Spaniard following his impressive recent form.
“He is a very talented football player,” Wenger told a news conference on Thursday morning as The Sport Review reported.
“Since he has played centrally he has taken [his game to] another dimension, because on the flank he was a bit more exposed to things where he was not at his best.
“In the middle of the park, he gets you out of situations where you are under pressure. He is always technically perfect and in our recent games he has certainly been in the best form of his career.”
“Santi is happy to play, every day he is happy to be with the ball and to go out there. He is the perfect example for every young player to follow.”
