    Poor Santi. I dont wish this kind of complication to anyone. Annoying long term hospital stays with antibiotics and many times a lot of surgeries.

    Hard to see how he can come back to pro football and even if he makes it, to return to his pre injury playing level seems almost like a miracle. But we have witness stuff like that happen from time to time so you never know

    :drool: Absolute gem of a player - Always wanted him at LFC. Fingers crossed he comes out of this in the absolute best shape possible.

    Yep.
    Some players always come across as decent human beings and club rivalries can be put aside with them.
    Mata is another example.

    Sounds very similar to Ian Hutchinsons injury who got ridden over during a superbike race at silverstone, luckily hes a lot better and has won several more Isle of Man TT titles since, its a great story if you fancy watching the documentary so there’s definitely hope for Santi.

    I was watching something about stem cells and regeneration of tendons and other bodily tissues. Surely worth a shot!

    Ah man, he's a cracking footballer as well. Proper player.

    Get well soon, Cazorla.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he announced his retirement soon.

    Great little footballer, very sad news regarding his injuries and surgery.

    Fortunately, I think he's under the right manager in Wenger to give him the right amount of time and conditions to come back from this latest setbacks, like he did with Diaby.

    Incredibly underrated. His absence had a direct influence on Ozil's performances as well as without Santi, Arsenal do not have a player who can build from the back. Ramsey, Elneny, Xhaka have all been tried there but none have been able to replicate the control Santi had, this also made Ozil play noticeably much deeper compared to when Santi was there as none of those players have the ability to connect the defense to attack; Ozil had to do that job for them. Ozil having to drop deeper meant his influence on the game lowered and his assist numbers suffered massively in the second half of the 15-16 season during when Santi was injured.

    Arsenal have desperately missed him. His partnership with Coquelain was very impressive in the early 15-16 season. Balance of defensive grit and creativity/control.

    I think it's best he calls it a day and hopefully recovers from all these surgeries. He's had a good career without putting his health in danger

    Obviously the recovery is the most important thing, but it would be great if he could turn out one last time to say goodbye to the game properly. Even if it's just a 10 minute cameo in a dead rubber or a game that's over. I never like to see players forced to retire like this.

    Sad end to a very good player.. Wenger doesn't sound convinced at all that he could come back.. But all things considered,if he can walk and get some of the basics done first,then that in itself should be viewed as an improvement..

    Good little player, he could really strike the ball. Hopefully he'll make a complete recovery from here on.

    Lovely player on the pitch and classy off the pitch.

    May he come back as soon as possible, if not as a player at least in good health.
