The 32-year old, however, did not get better and had to have 8 surgeries in total, but the wound got infected.

The infection had “eaten” the Achilles tendon on his right leg, adding: “There were eight centimetres of it missing”, Cazorla told Spanish paper Marca 

The player was to receive several antibiotic treatments which were successful, but there were fears he may have had to lose the leg because of a blood infection.

“They [the doctors] told me if you get to walk again with your son in the garden, be satisfied.”
