The Spaniard admits last season was a difficult 12 months at the Emirates.
â€śI feel wanted at Watford and that is a big factor for me,â€ť he told the London Evening Standard. â€śThe players respect me a lot and I can feel that. Iâ€™m feeling settled and Iâ€™m happy here. The most important thing is being back in the game, being back on the pitch, being back with the team and being involved every Saturday.
â€śOf course, I didnâ€™t have a chance to do anything but train [at Arsenal last season]. I was nearly out of the club and I knew it from the start of the season. But I stayed at Arsenal like a gentleman and trained every day.
â€śNow, I feel good in myself and thatâ€™s crucial because in football the mind is more important than the physical part of playing. A mentally healthy player is a much better player.â€ť
