Santi Cazorla has paid tribute to Arsene Wenger's style of his managing players.
The attacker, who was called up by his country in their provisional 30-man squad for this summer's World Cup, said Wenger's longevity at Arsenal meant he demanded respect.
Carozla made the comments in an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca.
He told Marca.com
"I was surprised by how close he is.
"When I joined Arsenal it felt strange to have a manager who had been at the club for 16 years.
"That makes you respect him even more.
"He opened up my mind from the very first day."Earlier this season the Spain international said Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini, who he had worked under at Villarreal and Malaga, was the best manager he'd played under.
