Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla was unveiled as a Villareal player on Thursday in magical fashion.
Villarreal unveiled him using a bizarre magic stunt.
The 33-year-old re-signed for Villareal on a free transfer after his contract with Premier League giants Arsenal expired at the end of last season.
He didn’t make a single appearance for the Gunners for almost two years due to various injuries.
The 2012 and 2016 European Championship winner was at the risk of having his foot amputated after he suffering an infection on one of the numerous Achilles surgeries he underwent.
Cazorla, who made 241 appearances over two spells for Villareal, proved his fitness during preseason and has been handed a one-year deal.
While speaking during his unveiling, Cazorla said: “Today is a very special day for me because I return to what I consider to be my home.”
“I am eternally grateful to Villarreal for giving me unconditional support during these two years and always open the doors for me. It’s a club that for me is an example and that always does things well despite the difficulties.
“I’ve always said that giving up was not an option. It is true that I still have some pains that prevent me from being 100 per cent, but I work daily to remove them. Every day I have better feelings, but I am very demanding and I want to keep improving.
“Now it’s time to give everything for this shirt and this club.” The former Malaga star concluded.
