Villarreal winger could miss World Cup

The 25-year-old underwent hernia surgery in February, but his rehabilitation drags on.

He said: “I cannot say if I will return this season. At this time I have many doubts and negative feelings.”

Cazorla added: “It is impossible to set a concrete date for my return and that is the worst feeling.

“The World Cup is far off for me because I need to play and this is the problem.”
