Santi Cazorla forced to undergo surgery once more

37

Santi Cazorla, who has been through so much already, has sadly provided an update on his situation, and revealed that he’s had to undergo yet another operation.

Details of just how horrendous his problems have been emerged earlier this month, but it seemed as if he’d gone beyond the point where surgery was required again.

This brings the total to at least nine operations since he was sidelined back in October 2016 with an Achilles problem.

In a statement on his Twitter account, the Spaniard said:

Due to some discomfort in the tendon that has dragged on for the last few days, I have had to undergo surgery. It is delaying the date of return to the pitch. I maintain the hope and motivation to enjoy my great passion, soccer #football.

It’s a dreadful blow for the 33 year old, and casts even further doubts over his ability to return to action. As ever all we can do is wish him the best and hope that he can finally get on top of this dreadful situation.

Ánimo, Santi.

This is a real shame. It’s really starting to look like we won’t see him in an arsenal shirt again. A true legend, gentleman and brilliant player.

Forget about football and contracts and who’s getting what wages. Everyone at Arsenal should look at Santi and realise how fragile life can be. Look at him & feel him. Our hearts & thoughts god’s out to you, brother. Stay strong and get well soon!

I have to say Arsenal has the worst medical team ever. It’s as if we sacrifice a top talent to the gods of injury.

How do you know it’s our medical team? We have a two footed ball carrier wizard. He has a lot of the ball and makes cunts out of a lot of people. When you make cunts out of a lot of people you’re going to get injured.

To be fair, I don’t think either our medical team or the people he ‘made cunts out of’ can be blamed.

It is a chronic, ongoing injury that is being treated outside of the club – actually outside of this country.

Let’s just wish him well rather than try to apportion blame.

Sure blame the club! Have you read the interviews etc? He caught a freak infection that consumed eight inches of his tendon. Must be Gary O’Driscolks fault for injection the infection into the tendon then! FFS
Arsenal as a club, have done a lot of things wrong in recent years. This isn’t one of them!

9 operations. I guess they’ll get it right after the 10th operation. Clueless

Funny how the same old idiots attribute the blame to our medical team. Santi is the most technically gifted player at Arsenal. His career has been destroyed by the FA and the Premier League for not taking the standard of fair play seriously. We have selective and fireman like officiating in our league. By that I mean, whatever is deemed serious enough, the FA only then step in to put out the fire. All the billions the league makes and we are still watching a middle aged man prance around the pitch in high intensity environment, hoping they will make… Read more »

Does it mean that it’s only arsenal players that get kicked. I believe the medical team has some questions to answer after all wenger said it some time ago that he has lost confidence in his medical team

Surely this is his last operation, any setbacks now that requires surgery should be a sign for him to retire. So sad for him. Get well soon!

That poor guy, I can’t even begin to imagine what he’s gone through and all the work he’s put in to be able to get back on the pitch. Reminds me so much of the situation Rosicky faced as his career was winding down. Two of my favorite all-time players not just for their amazing technical ability, but the joy and grace with which they played football. I’ve never seen anyone appear to love to play more than Santi.
