Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has given Arsenal.com a positive update on the fitness of Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere as the duo close in on their comebacks.
Cazorla has been on the sidelines since undergoing surgery to repair a cruciate knee ligament injury that he suffered against West Bromwich Albion back in November.
However, Wenger has revealed that the Spaniard is now back running again and is following an individual training programme that should see him make his first team comeback within the next few weeks.
Wilshere hasn’t played a single minute of competitive football this season after suffering a fracture to his fibula on the eve of our Community Shield win over Chelsea way back in August.
But in a double boost, the boss has confirmed that he too is close to making his long-awaited comeback and should join Cazorla back in the squad within the coming weeks.
Wenger told the clubs website:
on Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla…
They are back running, they are on a fitness programme now so it means it is not a question of months anymore, it is a question of weeks for them to be back.
It will be a significant moment when Wilshere and Cazorla are available again as they’ve been greatly missed over the past few months. In their absence, Wenger has deployed Aaron Ramsey alongside Mathieu Flamini – who’s been filling-in for Francis Coquelin in recent months – but they’ve struggled to form a solid partnership in the middle of the park.
Hopefully Wilshere and Cazorla don’t suffer any setbacks when they step-up their recoveries and return to full training later this month as we desperately need them fully-fit during the closing stages of the season.
