Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla on being happy all the time

Cazorla And Podolski

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla says that he enjoys his football thoroughly.

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla always plays with a smile on his face and looks happy all the time.

The Spain international has now revealed the secret behind that: he simply loves football.

‘Football is my job and I always play for the fans and the club’, the 29-year-old attacking midfielder told Arsenal’s official website. ‘It’s always important for the players to feel happy on the pitch, in training and in the dressing room. I try every day to be happy for my teammates.

‘Sometimes it’s good to always be happy and sometimes it’s not that good. Having a good atmosphere around the club is important for me and the team. It’s the same on the pitch - if you train happy, you will play happy’.

Things have not been so ‘happy’ at Arsenal lately, as the Gunners have struggled to compete with Chelsea in the Premier League.

Arsene Wenger’s side are currently firth in the league table with 14 points from nine matches, two points behind West Ham United, who are fourth.

However, Cazorla seems to have a positive attitude. If the players remain happy and continue to enjoy their football, then the results will eventually come.
