Watch: Santi Cazorla Gives Heartbreaking Interview After Arsenal's Europa League Defeat

Santi Cazorla, who's been out of action for around 18 months, has weighed in on Arsenal crashing out of the Europa League while also speaking out on his future.

Diego Costa denied a fairy tale ending for the departing Arsene Wenger. The ex-Chelsea hero netted the only goal of the tie, sending Atletico Madrid into the Europa League final against Marseille.

Naturally, Arsenal players were devastated.

And following the game, they expressed their sadness for failing to give Wenger a fitting send off, including injury-stricken Cazorla who was present at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The Spanish maestro is 'very sad' for not reaching the final due to a number of reasons. For the club, fans and Wenger.

Meanwhile, Cazorla's contract is set to expire at the end of the season, and he's unaware of what his future holds.

"My contract finishes in June and I do not know anything about my future. I'm going little by little with the injury," he said.

The 33-year-old hasn't featured for Arsenal since October 2016.

He's been blighted with a serious ankle injury, preventing him from returning to the field.

There was even fears he wouldn't be able to walk again after contracting an infection.

But he's back in light training in view to continuing his footballing career.

As well as giving his thoughts on the final. "Atletico are the big favorites for the final, they were already when they were eliminated from the Champions League."

Here's hoping Cazorla returns to the pitch, and dazzles football fans with his undeniable ability.
