Arsenal fans love what Santi Cazorla has done with new club Al-Sadd.
The 36-year-old spent six years at Arsenal, making 129 league appearances, but his time in North London ended without a proper goodbye amid his tough time with injury.
Cazorla went on to return to La Luga outfit Villarreal for a third spell with the club, beating the odds to return to injury to play at the very top level for two years.
Last year, however, Cazorla moved on, joining Qatari side Al-Sadd, and he is already achieving plenty of success with his new club already lifting a title.
Al-Sadd, managed by Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez and armed with Cazorla, won the Qatar Cup on Friday night, defeating Al-Duhali in the final thanks to two goals from Baghdad Bounedjah.
Arsenal fans spotted images of Cazorla celebrating his third title since arriving in Qatar and his first Qatar Cup.
The Gunners fans reacted to Cazorla’s achievement on Reddit. Here’s what a selection had to say.
OstapBenderBey – “Time to come home for a friendly next season?”
MysteriousPhrase637 – “Woooooah sant Carzoooolahhh.”
RSU1806 – “I love this man.”
M_Night_Shambles_On – “Santi is timeless.”
Saiko1993 – “Once legend always a legend….winning finals with a smile just Santi things.”
Gunners86 – “Shame he never got a proper send off from Arsenal, that free kick against Hull on the cup final will always be my favourite goal of his.”

Cazorla has previously said he would like to get the chance to say a proper goodbye to Arsenal fans. He said last year in an interview with the BBC: “It was frustrating to not be able to say goodbye to a club who treated me so well.
“It is something left in my career to say goodbye properly. I am eternally grateful to the club and the fans for the way they continue to treat me.”
