Reports are out claiming that Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla says Stoke City have changed their football during his time in England.
The Potters have been one of Arsenal’s great rivals in recent years.
Cazorla stated: “I think that in recent years English teams have made an effort to play a better football. I remember the first time I played at the Britannia Stadium my team-mates told me, ‘Welcome to England’. Playing there at the time was about long balls or throw-ins into your box so the centre backs could score a header. However, Stoke City is a different club now, with the likes of Bojan, Arnautovic and Shaqiri in the squad.
“I think that every club is getting to know that possession style [football] is the nicest to watch, as opposed to the kick-and-run style English football had before.”
