ARSENAL star Santi Cazorla has apologised to Malaga fans about the way he left the club.
In a heart-felt apology, Cazorla revealed that he still feels guilty about not having the time to hold a press conference to say goodbye.
Cazorla – who is still Malaga’s record signing – joined the Gunners in 2012, after the Spanish club encountered financial problems and were forced to offload several key players.
And the 30-year-old still feels bad for leaving.
“I know that in Malaga lots of people haven’t forgiven me for the way I left,” Cazorla said.
“When I signed for Arsenal, everything happened so quick, I had to go to London.
“Arsenal had already started their pre-season and I had to go over there for a medical, and then I had to go to Holland to start to train with the squad.
“That all meant that I couldn’t go to Malaga to hold a press conference to say goodbye to everyone face to face.
“I’d like to apologise for not being able to say goodbye properly as I know that would have been the best thing.
“It still bothers me that I didn’t get to do that for the fans.”
