Saddened Wenger scales Cazorla's Arsenal return date right back

Saddened Wenger scales Cazorla's Arsenal return date right back”

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has delivered a sad update on the injury status of fan favourite Santi Cazorla, explaining that the player has informed him he will have to "start again from zero" on the road to recovery after recently undergoing a ninth surgery on his troublesome Achilles.

The 32-year-old was set for a comeback in January but those plans were once again pushed back after it was revealed he needed yet another round of surgery.

Cazorla confirmed in an interview last month that he has lost eight centimeters of his tendon and contracted a bacterial infection that could have led to him losing his foot had it not been treated properly.

The Spain midfielder went back under the knife again last week; a ninth operation on an problematic ankle injury that has kept him on the sidelines since October 2016.

"I sent him a message [after the surgery] and wished him well. But unfortunately he has to start again from zero". What he has gone through this guy is unbelievable.

"It's really, really sad".

Wenger had initially hoped the Spaniard could return in January but now he fears for his future after the latest setback. And after, when he starts to run, it will at least take six weeks to come back to training.

Wenger was asked whether Cazorla would ever return.

It means the Spaniard is running out of time to prove he deserves a new deal before the end of the season.

And that's assuming he doesn't suffer any further setbacks - which are inevitable - during his rehabilitation so it's looking increasingly unlikely that we'll see Cazorla play for the first team again.

The Spaniard also almost came close to amputating his foot after an infection but the 32-year-old is adamant to regain full fitness and return to the side.
