It’s being reported that Santi Cazorla has been sent to Spain for treatment on the current Achilles problem that has kept him out of action since early last month.
The Spanish international took a kick during the 6-0 win over Ludogorets, aggravating a long-standing problem, and hasn’t played since.

Cugat is an orthopaedic surgeon, described by Pep Guardiola as ‘the best doctor in the world’, operating in Barcelona. The Man City manager sent Kevin de Bruyne and Vincent Kompany to him for treatment, and he’s also worked with the likes of Carles Puyol, Cesc Fabregas and Fernando Torres.
Speaking last week, Arsene Wenger admitted he wasn’t sure when Cazorla would be available, and the player himself was vague, saying, “I am trying to return as soon as soon as possible to be with the team again but I cannot say if it will be soon or if I still have a few weeks left.
“That is what I don’t know, but hopefully it will be as soon as possible.”
Fingers crossed this fella can help, a doctor with his own Wikipedia page must be good!
