Arsene Wenger described forgotten Arsenal man Santi Cazorla's situation as "really, really sad" and revealed that the Spaniard has been forced to "start again from zero" in his recovery.

Spain worldwide Cazorla has spent over a year on the sidelines due to multiple surgeries on a tendon injury and came close to requiring an amputation of his foot after contracting an infection.

The 32-year-old Spain worldwide has not played since October of last year when a knee ligament injury afforded him the chance to rectify an ankle issue he had been nursing for the previous weeks and months.

"I sent him a message because he had a new surgery and wished him well. But unfortunately he has to start again from zero".

" It is very sad. What he has gone through, this guy, is unbelievable", said the Arsenal boss.

"It's really, really sad".

Wenger added: "If all goes well he has to wait until he starts to run and after he starts to run it takes six weeks to come back to training". When he will be able to run again I don't know.

"This is a real pain, it's bad news - I was hopeful that he'd come back in January but that was before this setback".

The latest setback increases the chances that Cazorla may never play for Arsenal again, as his contract expires next summer. I hope [he will be back].

Having undergone the procedure on Monday, Cazorla's return date remains a mystery but Wenger optimistically claimed he could be in line for a February comeback should all go to plan. "But certainly now, not before February".
