'I'm not crying, you're crying': Some Arsenal fans love what club has posted on Twitter today
Arsenal fans have paid tribute to Santi Cazorla after the club shared footage of his fine strike against West Ham, nine years ago today.
The Spanish midfielder joined Arsenal in 2012 and became a fan favourite for his hard-working, dazzling displays for Arsene Wenger’s side.
Unfortunately, a serious Achilles injury saw Cazorla lose out on close to 700 days of his career, and there were even fears he’d lose the ability to walk.
His time at Arsenal came to an end in the summer of 2018, when he left for Villarreal on a free transfer.
Cazorla had made 180 appearances for the Gunners, registering 29 goals and 45 assists in red and white.
Cazorla spent two years with the Yellow Submarines before leaving in 2020,
He is now playing for Qatari club Al-Sadd under Barcelona legend and former Spain teammate Xavi.
Nine years ago today, Cazorla scored the third goal in a 3-1 win for Arsenal at Upton Park, the Gunners coming from a goal down to triumph.
Arsenal shared footage of the long-range strike on Twitter:
And Arsenal fans loved what they saw:

We’ve never been as good since he left, especially our away form. He could control games for us. We badly lack that now.— David (@Davo_614) October 6, 2021
