Cazorla: I introduced myself to Arsenal teammates singing the Macarena!

Santi Cazorla admits he introduced himself to his new Arsenal teammates by singing the 'Macarena'!

Like many Premier League clubs, a tradition at Arsenal is for any new signing to sing a song in front of the squad.

"It is a ritual that you must endure when you join a new club to get started," smiled Cazorla.

"It was after dinner, the night before an exhibition game. The boys told the newbies they all have to sing a song. I chose the 'Macarena', because I thought this for me as a Spaniard would be the easiest. And moreover, I knew the dance.

"It was an embarrassing moment, but the tradition is good. You laugh and it helps the team building."
