Big Blow ! Santi Cazorla To Face Another Five Months On The Sideline



Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla will be out of action for an additional five months in the wake of enduring a setback in his recuperation, but the Spanish international confirmed he has agreed to a new deal, having considered surrendering his battle to regain full fitness.

Cazorla has not featured for the Gunners since a 6-0 Champions League win over Ludogorets in October because of injury. It was at first hoped the 32-year-old would make a speedy return, but he was compelled to go under surgical blade on several occasions and in the end missed the rest of the 2016-17 campaign.

The former Villareal midfielder who has underwent surgery for the eighth time this week revealed coming back to action is far away

“I have not been given a timeframe for my comeback,” Cazorla told Cadena Ser.


“It is very difficult to put a date on it, but I think it will be another five months.

“It has been since October that I last played. I have undergone eight surgeries, the last one Monday. I hope that things go better. I have had complications since November. I got a bacterial infection in surgery, my bone got infected, the wound would not close and I had a graft done.

“It was the worst season of my career. You feel like throwing in the towel, but my desire to play football is above everything.”
