Arsenal playmaker Santi Cazorla might be spending the summer in Brazil racking up the assists for Spain at the Confederations Cup, but his head and heart are both still in North London where he is reeling from the high of pipping arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur to fourth place.
The 28 year old Spaniard, who has achieved folk hero status despite just having spent a year at the club,a hopes that the Gunners will now ride on the confidence from their strong end to the season and challenge for silverware next year.
Cazorla shared in an interview with the Metro, “When the team does not win and we do not get the results we want, the collective confidence does drop a little and that is natural. Now we have put in a spectacular run-in and you can see the difference in mentality. We have great players. I am sure we will be a better team and improve.”
Arsenal fans will no doubt hope that the improvement Cazorla speaks about translates into ending the Gunners 8 year long trophy drought.
