Arsenal midfielder, Santi Cazorla has been ruled out for another five months after enduring a setback in his recovery though he recently agreed to a new deal.
Cazorla who underwent surgery for the eighth time this week revealed in a statement:
“I have not been given a timeframe for my comeback,” Cazorla told Cadena Ser.
“It is very difficult to put a date on it, but I think it will be another five months.
“It has been since October that I last played. I have undergone eight surgeries, the last one Monday. I hope that things go better. I have had complications since November. I got a bacterial infection in surgery, my bone got infected, the wound would not close and I had a graft done.”
The former Villarreal star who made just 11 appearances in all competitions last season has not featured for Arsenal since a 6-0 Champions League win over Ludogorets in October due to an ankle injury.
