Arsenal playmaker Santi Cazorla has stated that he is relishing added responsibility at Arsenal, and feels his career has progressed since moving to England.
The talented attacker joined the north London side from Malaga in the summer, and has initially impressed with his skill and eye for a pass.
Cazorla has stated that moving to the Emirates Stadium is a new and worthwhile challenge for him.
“It could be that in the few months I have been there people have been talking a lot more about me,” Cazorla told Spanish reporters, published in The Telegraph.
“I feel important at Arsenal and I want to keep developing. The way Arsenal play and the responsibility they have given me is something I have always sought out.
“I think it’s a step forward in my career and I hope to improve a great deal in the future, he continued.
Cazorla is in Spain’s squad for upcoming World Cup qualifiers, and although he is behind the likes of David Silva and Cesc Fabregas in selection terms, wants to play a role in the side’s success.
“I am happy with my role and it’s a privilege to be here.
“Hopefully I can continue to help out as much as possible, I am working every day towards that. I am feeling in very good shape and I consider myself fortunate to have the opportunities I am being given,” he concluded.
