Villarreal bizarrely reveal their new midfield magician in a plume of smoke

Villarreal bizarrely reveal their new midfield magician in a plume of smoke

He has signed a one-year deal with the La Liga side having left Arsenal earlier this summer, with the playmaker's last official match for the Gunners coming against Ludogorets on October 19, 2016.

Usually, when a new singing comes to your club you are usually greeted with a smiling picture or possibly a fancy video of them doing a few keepy-uppies but not at Villarreal.

Former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has been unveiled by Villarreal in spectacular fashion.

Cazorla, 33, feared his career was over when an infection he suffered after surgery nearly led to his foot being amputated in 2017.

The 33-year old was on the pitch in a glass tube filled with smoke in what looked like a scene from a horror movie where a scientific experiment goes seriously wrong.

Fans packed out a stand in the Estadio de la Ceramica to watch magician Yunke produce Cazorla seemingly out of thin air.

Cazorla then appeared to be beamed into place inside the box before the door was opened to reveal the grinning midfielder.

"It's been a very special day, returning home", he added. I still have some pains and I want to get rid of them and be 100 percent. "I'm grateful to Villarreal, not just for how they opened the doors to me when I was 18, but for their unconditional support through hard moments and for re-opening the doors to me [now]".

"It's a club that for me is an example and that always does things well despite the difficulties".
