Arsenal have had yet another indifferent season, but the one shining light for the Gunners this campaign has been their acquisition of Spanish international Santi Cazorla.
The former Malaga man has chipped in with goals and assists right through the course of the campaign and believes that despite the obvious disappointment of this season, the Gunners will bounce back stronger next year and challenge for honours once again.
In an interview quoted in the Daily Star, Cazorla said, The aim is to win trophies but the club has gone eight years without a trophy, which is a long time for such a huge club. This year we haven’t been able to. I hope next year will be another story. We want to be fighting for the league and all the tournaments we enter.”
Cazorla believes that the club’s lack of consistency in the first half of the season cost them dearly, a perhaps natural outcome of so many new players having joined the team in the off season. However, having played together for a year, next year could well be different for the Gunners, a hope most fans are likely to share.
