Santi Cazorla confirms he’ll be out of action for at least five more months after suffering another setback in his recovery injury.
The 32-year-old told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser that he had just undergone his eighth separate operation on his right ankle since injuring his plantaris tendon against Ludogorets in the Champions League back in October. Cazorla confirmed he had his latest surgery on Monday and admitted there is no current timeline on his return: "It’s very difficult to put a date, but I don’t think it will be before five months." Complications in his recovery – bacterial infection / skin graft / bone infection – could leave the Spain star sidelined for the remainder of the year and what was originally only thought to be a minor issue, is likely to keep him out of competitive action for at least 13 months. Cazorla revealed he felt "like throwing in the towel" following the news, but it is his desire to play football "above everything else" that is driving him on to make a full recovery. May 31 - 6:09 PM
