Cazorla suffers fresh injury hell, Arsenal fans react

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has not played for the club since October last year due to a strong of injury problems.

What began as an innocuous Achilles problem turned into a handful of treatments and operations.

Following surgery, the 32-year-old contracted gangrene in his right ankle and ended up requiring a skin graft due to the infection damaging his tendon further.

The midfielder had skin removed from his arm to cover the eight centimetres that was ripped away by the infection.

Initially, it was suggested that Cazorla would return to the pitch in the New Year, but now he has revealed on social media that he has suffered a fresh setback.

The Spaniard confirmed that he underwent another operation – his ninth in total – after feeling pain in his tendon.

“As a result of some discomfort in the tendon that I had been suffering in recent days, I have had to go into theatre again. I have to put back the date for my return. I still have the motivation and the hope of being able to return to enjoy my great passion, football.”

As expected, Arsenal fans have turned out in their droves on social media to send Cazorla their well-wishes during a difficult time on the treatment table.
