Very brave and determined too, but will he recover his form? He is a player we have missed a lot



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

It will be interesting to know what kinda injury insurance Arsenal bought, I believe some very substandard cheap one, Arsenal always have problem with players recovering from injury with very long recovery, lousy diagnosis, infections etc. We don't hear this often at other clubs. Probably they don't even have to pay almost anything when a player is injured so they can even sign a renewal with the player. Again something doesn't add up reading this injury report!!

Yes I thought that Sandy, why did he play after the injury but before full recovery?

Horrific. Some things are bigger than football. If I were him I'd be very tempted to walk away.

Obviously a shame. Not particularly bothered by his loss though.

Even after all this I bet Wenger still has Cazorla as a key part of his plans even though top quality managers would've signed a replacement 2 years ago.

Much as it pains me to have to agree with Gunnersingh1 - I do think losing Cazorla for the past 18 months has been a huge blow

I think its akin to the Gilberto back injury situation, fans didnt realise what they had until it was gone

Cazorla is one of the most loved Arsenal players of the past 10 years.

Having another Op.

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.

Poor guy but you have to be realistic at his age and going through what he has.

Time to hang them up unfortunately.

If he does make a return one day his body won't hold up. At his age and following an injury like that, his body will break down elsewhere and he will just suffer further knock on injuries.

It's almost guaranteed unfortunately. He was a really good player for us for awhile.

Sad but true. Time to call it a day and hang up his boots.

He will be a fantastic coach hopefully. Hope he recovers to be able to atleast play some kind of practice football. And that he tries his hand at coaching

Cazorla comes across as a nice guy and it is sad to hear about his ordeal. Too many players at this club have these crazy injuries. Remember Diaby.



We don't have anybody with 20 goals in the league, so that is a handicap - Arsene Wenger
