Like father, like son: Santi Cazorla's five-year-old kid Enzo enthralls Arsenal fans with dribbling skills
Enzo Cazorla, the five-year-old son of the Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla, provided some of the best moments from St Totteringham Day celebrations at the Emirates stadium.
Despite a disappointing end to their Premier League title challenge, Arsenal finished on a high on the final day of the season. They thumped relegated Aston Villa 4-0 to finish second in the Premier League as Tottenham Hotspur slumped to a 5-1 loss to another relegated side Newcastle.
Apart from a repeat of St. Totteringham's Day, there was one more bright spot for the Gunners after the Villa game. That bright spot is called Cazorla. No, not Santi, but Enzo. Enzo Cazorla, the five-year-old son of the Arsenal midfielder provided some of the best moments from St Totteringham Day celebrations at the Emirates stadium. It turns out Enzo is just as talented as his father.
The five-year-old delighted Arsenal fans with his dribbling skills, much like his father. He was filmed chipping the ball over an incoming Joel Campbell and dribbling around other kids. The video might remind one of the now famous video of a young Messi destroying all opposition in a football game.

Many fans on Twitter urged Arsenal scouts to pay attention as Enzo seems like a talent to hold on to. Many opined the kid was much better an option than Theo Walcott.

Enzo Cazorla already has a better footballing brain than Theo Walcott. And you think I'm joking.

Arsene Wenger is known for signing young talents who go on to become future stars. He might just get tempted to get Enzo as well. Santi could help with contract negotiations as well. Maybe Enzo, just like his father, can go on to become a Gooner himself.
The Norwegian, who took over from Jose Mourinho in 2018, will stay at Old Trafford until at least 2024, with the option of an extra year.
