Villarreal midfielder Santi Cazorla accepts he'll continue to be asked why he rejected Real Madrid in the summer.

"Since I said no to the possibility of going to Real Madrid, it is true you always ask me why, but the truth is that it no longer bothers me," said Cazorla.

"You can continue to do so, however it is part of the past. I'm happy at Villarreal and they're happy with me."
