Santi Cazorla reportedly won’t return to training with Arsenal until October.
- Cazorla suffered ankle problem in October 2016
- Has undergone two surgeries
- Isn’t expected to return until October
- Midfielder has signed new deal with Gunners, which is yet to be announced by the club
Cazorla suffered an Achilles problem during Arsenal’s 6-0 thumping of Ludogorets at the Emirates back on 19 October.
The 32-year-old reappeared shortly after being subbed off merely holding an ice-pack to his ankle and Arsene Wenger he’d been ‘kicked’ post-match.
However, as time progressed and Cazorla failed to return to training, Gooners began to fear the worst regarding the injury-prone midfielder’s latest problem.
While Arsene Wenger has ruled out one of the Gunners’ most influential players for the rest of the season, it’s concerning to hear that, according to TuttoMercatoWeb, he may not even be recovered in time for the beginning of the next campaign.
If he really is out until October, Cazorla will have been sidelined for an entire year.
