Arsenal’s Czech Republic international attacking midfielder Tomas Rosicky could be out of action for up to two months. His agent Pavel Paska talking about Rosicky said: “(Rosicky) underwent an arthroscopic surgery on his knee on August 4.
“The recovery is expected to take four to eight weeks.”
The 34-year-old picked-up the injury in the Czech Republic’s European Championship qualifier against Iceland in June and it seems it will be a while before Rosicky pulls on an Arsenal short again.
Rosicky was heavily linked with a move away from the Gunners this summer, with homeland club Sparta Prague mooted as a prospective destination for Rosicky.
However the experienced star signed a new one-year deal in May to keep him at Arsenal for his tenth season with the north London club. The skilful attacking midfielder has been a loyal servant to the Gunners since joining the club in 2006 from Dortmund.
Rosicky may not been a key player any more for the Gunners, but still made 24 appearances in all competitions last season. He is a very useful player to have in the squad, even if he is no longer a regular first team starter for the team.
Is Tomas Rosicky still a useful player for Arsenal?
