Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has opened up about the injury problems that nearly cost him his career.
With an infection rampant, his doctor found that Cazorla had suffered enormous damage to his ankle. Though, when Cazorla was first ruled out of action, over a year ago now, the Spaniard has had to undergo eight operations since.
"The problem was that it did not heal and the wounds would reopen, become infected".
The Spanish midfielder has not played for Arsenal since October previous year and has had to undergo multiple operations, resulting in the loss of eight centimetres from the tendon in his right ankle. Cazorla explained that specialists out in Spain stated that they had never seen anything like it. "There were eight centimetres of it missing".
Doctors had to perform a skin graft from Santi Cazorla's arm to his ankle.
A Euro 2008 and 2012 victor with Spain, Cazorla says Arsenal and his former Spain national teammates have been very supportive. The aggressive nature of three bacteria required antibiotic treatments and it was at this stage that fears arose of a blood infection that could mean amputation.
Cazorla, who has won two FA Cups and two European Championships, hopes to return to the pitch in the new year.
The "hardest thing", says Cazorla, is being alone without his family and there is no timescale on his return to Arsenal'sLondon Colney training base.
