Having made his first Arsenal appearance for seven months last weekend in Arsenal’s FA Cup over Burnley, the Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky was forced off the pitch with a tight strain and he is now in for another lengthy spell on the sidelines.
Fresh injury blow could call time on Tomas Rosicky’s hopes of making another appearance for Arsenal this season, BBC has reported.
The fresh test on the extent of his latest injury have confirmed that Rosicky has suffered the partial tear of his tendon and this injury will most likely keep the 35-year-old out of action for three months, which means that the experienced midfielder may have played his final game for the club as well.
Rosicky has only a few months left in his contract with Arsenal.
The Czech international has signed one-year extension to his deal last summer, but has struggled with injuries during the entire year.
He has been with Arsenal since 2006 and has so far made 170 Premier League appearances scoring 19 goals in the process.
Arsenal supporters have cheered Rosicky’s name as made his way onto the pitch against Burnley and Tomas Rosicky was very appreatiative for the support he was given.
“It was unbelievable, something I didn’t expect. I had tears in my eyes after such a long time being out,” Rosicky told Arsenal.com explaining his emotional reception.
Arsene Wenger hopes the fans haven’t seen the last of Rosicky as he has also offered his full support to the injured midfielder.
