Former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla showed he still has a place in his heart for the Gunners after the side’s 2-1 win against Chelsea in the FA Cup final.

The Gunners secured their first piece of silverware under Mikel Arteta by coming back from a goal down against Frank Lampard’s side to claim their 14th FA Cup victory.

Cazorla won the cup twice during his time in north London and supporters have not forgotten the part the Spainard played under Arsene Wenger.

The 35-year-old made just 33 appearances in his final three seasons at Arsenal and was told by a series of medical officials that his career was over after a number of ankle and foot injuries.

Cazorla dumbfounded the doubters by returning to full fitness and he’s spent the last two seasons at Villarreal, where he’s scored 25 goals.

The Spaniard was released at the end of the season and has been heavily linked with a return to the Emirates, where Arteta is keen to have his former team-mate as part of his backroom staff.

And Cazorla has shown he’s lost little of the love he had for Arsenal by sending a message of congratulations to his former side.

‘Well done boys one more for all of you!❤️🏆👏😘,’ said Cazorla.
