Arsenal midfielder out for a year?

Santi Carzorla reportedly won’t be returning to the Emirates for training until October.

Carzola sustained an Achilles injury during Arsenal’s 6-0 victory over Ludogorets at the Emirates back in October

The 32-year old made a brief appearance after being substituted merely holding an ice-pack to his ankle.

However, further treatment prevented Carzorla from returning to the training ground, Gunners began to fear the worst concerning the midfielder’s health.

In December, the Spaniard took a trip down to Sweden, where he had a surgery performed on his ankle.

While Arsene Wenger has declared him unfit for the rest of the season, it is disheartening to hear he might not well enough to begin the new season with the team.

If it happens that he does not really appear till October,  Then Carzorla will have sidelined for an entire year.
