Santi Cazorla says he’ll quit if he can’t make it through pre-season training.
Santi Cazorla has told the press in Spain that he will call it a day if he is unable to make it through pre-season training with Villarreal.
To the heartbreak of Arsenal fans everywhere, the Spaniard left the club this summer when his contract expired. Although he would most likely have gotten a new contract had Arsene Wenger still been at the club, the new regime in place has shown there is no room for sentimentality and he was allowed to leave with the club’s blessing.
Cazorla underwent a series of tests over the weekend to ensure he was fit and ready for the start of Villarreal’s pre-season.
He passed and started training on Monday with his new team.
I will not deceive anyone, if I see that I can not give up, I leave it,” Cazorla told AS.
Although Google translate has done its thing with Cazorla’s quote, the intention is quite clear – if he can’t make it through pre-season training, he will call it a day.
