The Spanish midfielder cites the example of Stoke City and claims that the Potters have undergone a major shift in their football philosophy in recent years, as some other traditional-style English sides are.
He told Arsenal Player: "Spanish people love watching English football and know what English football is about. They like the box-to-box spirit of the game and that turnaround that every game may have.
"In Premier League football, counter attacks are a very common thing no matter the game´s result, while in La Liga the team who is up in the scoreline controls the game a lot more. But even English football philosophy is changing little by little.
"I think that in recent years English teams have made an effort to play a better football. I remember the first time I played at the Britannia Stadium my team-mates told me, 'Welcome to England'. Playing there at the time was about long balls or throw-ins into your box so the centre backs could score a header.
"However, Stoke City is a different club now, with the likes of Bojan (Krkic), (Marko) Arnautovic and (Xherdan) Shaqiri in the squad.
"I think that every club is getting to know that possession style [football] is the nicest to watch, as opposed to the kick-and-run style English football had before."
