Injuries are the hazard of football but for Arsenal, the number and the type of injuries sustained by the players leaves so much to be desired.
But for lengthy spells on the sideline, Czech republic midfielder Tomas Rosicky was constantly in and out of Arsenal’s squad due to a niggling injury and his career at the Emirates came to an abrupt end, with many saying he did not fulfill his potential with the Club.
The case of Santi Cazorla mirrors that of the aforementioned Czech’s. An exclusive report by the Express is in the claim that the diminutive midfielder may have played his last game in the colours of Arsenal.
Cazorla was missing in action for the most part of the penultimate season, and last season the case was no different.. His last cameo for Arsenal was our Champions League game against Ludogrets, where he thumped them 6-0.
He was banjaxed with an Achilles problem during that game and it was claimed at that he would spend the essence of three weeks on the sideline. Alas, Cazorla has been under the knife for multiple times in a bid to get him back on his feets.
However, Santi Cazorla may not even feature for Arsenal this season as claimed by the Express report. Although he was spotted in the gym last week but he was yet on crutches.
Arsenal struggles for creativity and ball possession in the absence of Cazorla. The ambidexter midfielder has the ability to hold on to possession while he offers threats in attack creatively – this report must have come as a huge blow to Arsenal who are looking to bounce back next season.
We understand that the April of next year has been scheduled for his return. We hope he does not have another setback else, it will be the end of his career.
