Santi Cazorla and Arsene Wenger to return for Emirates farewell match

Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter get up to date football-related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News from Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Arsenal are reportedly planning a ‘farewell’ match for both Santi Cazorla and Arsene Wenger at the Emirates to take place some time before the start of next season.

When Arsene Wenger departed, unlike Sir Alex Ferguson, he gave his successor space and time to mess up without watching from the stands. In fact, he hasn’t been back for a game since his departure and that is, perhaps, not at all surprising.

But, as we all know, time heals many wounds.

As for Santi Cazorla, the player has frequently talked about not getting a chance to say goodbye to the fans while we all know everyone of us would love the chance to bid farewell to one of our favourite players of the last generation.

Tucked away at the very bottom of Sami Mokbel’s article in Wednesday’s Daily Mail on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contract status, that contained no new information and plenty of speculation, was this throwaway bit of info:

That’s it, that’s all we know at this point beyond the recent reports that Arsenal were planning something to bring Wenger back to the club, although the reasons at that point were not clear.
