It's magic! Santi Cazorla appears!

Normally, new arrivals will wave to the fans, or perform keepy-ups, but Cazorla was the magic trick, to the delight of the thousands of supporters who had gathered to see the club's new signing.

Cazorla, 33, feared his career was over when an infection he suffered after surgery nearly led to his foot being amputated in 2017.

Villarreal presented former Arsenal midfielder, Santi Cazorla, to fans in what could be the most weird unveiling of the summer.

The magnificent unveiling of the 33-year-old drew raucous cheers and applause from the hundreds of Villarreal fans inside the stadium.

"All the suffering has been worth it for this moment alone", said Cazorla, speaking after being magically beamed into a glass box at his presentation at the Estadio de la Ceramica.

Cazorla originally started his professional career with Villarreal B team in 2003, before going on to enjoy another spell at the club in 2007 after leaving a year earlier for Recreativo Huelva.

And Villarreal marked the return of the 33-year-old in unusual fashion by using a magic trick to present him to thousands of the club's fans. I still have some pains and I want to get rid of them and be 100 percent.

And Cazorla's unveiling at Spanish side Villarreal may go down as one of the strangest of all time. "It's a club that for me is an example and that always does things well despite the difficulties", Cazorla added.
