UEL: Santi Cazorla names club to win Europa League this season


Former Spain international, Santi Cazorla, has backed Arsenal or Villarreal to win this season’s UEFA Europa League, UEL.

Cazorla said this ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League semi-final second-leg tie with Villarreal on Thursday at Emirates.

Arsenal had lost 2-1 against Villarreal in the first-leg last Thursday in Spain.

Speaking to UEFA, Cazorla, a former Arsenal and Villarreal player, said: “My feelings for both clubs [Arsenal and Villarreal] are so huge that it’s difficult for me to choose one or the other.

“I would have liked for this tie to be the final as I would know at least the winner would lift the trophy.

“The feelings are going to be very beautiful, but I will feel very bad for the team that gets knocked out [in the semi-final]. The only thing I ask for is that the team that reaches the final wins it.

“I hope I can be there – I would love to watch the Europa League final live with either team in it and, most of all, to witness the joy of the winner.”
