Villarreal midfielder Coquelin: Arsenal time was amazing

Francis Coquelin has opened up on his time with Arsenal.

The Villarreal midfielder spent 10 years in north London before moving to Valencia in 2018.

Now with the Yellow Submarine, Coquelin has fond memories of his time at the Emirates.

"It was amazing!" he told So Foot.

"I was playing with Santi Cazorla and Mesut Özil in front of me. I could send them rubbish balls, and they controlled them with ease.

"The understanding I had with Cazorla particularly stayed with me. He's really impressive. I could do what I wanted on the pitch, I knew he would always there as a guarantee."
