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.
