According to reports, Santi Cazorla’s long layoff is not just because of an Achilles injury.
Seraphin Health says that although the Arrsenal midfielder was initially left out of the team because of an Achilles problem, his Achilles has actually been healed since February 2017. However, the surrounding flesh has been the issue.
As reported by The Sun, the Spaniard first went under the knife in December 2016, just after a month of Arsenal staff trying to establish the true source of the strange pain. Then the bone was said to have been infected, and the surgery incision didn’t heal properly, which left the wound open. The Spain international had skin removed from his arm to replace the one on his affected ankle.
At this point, it’s just a matter of building up the muscle on the calf he lost between the months of November and July, with the target to return in January 2018. Hopefully, this return date is correct.
Generally, Spain international Sanri Cazorla has apparently gone under the knife eight times since October 2016, so at this point you would imagine the midfield maestro is pretty sick of the lying on the hospital bed and just wants to return to the pitch of play. That’s exactly what most Arsenal fans want the Spaniard to do, given the brilliant performances he displays each time he is available on the pitch of play.
