Rosicky fuels exit talk after seeking more game time

Posted on September 04, 2014 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has expressed his discontent at being subsidiary to the first-team so far this season. The former Borussia Dortmund playmaker has played just 22 minutes of football in 2014/15, and has been linked with a move away as a result.

“The season is yet to get going, the Champions League will begin and it will be a roller-coaster of fixtures. We will see what the situation looks like in the coming weeks and months, how it develops. I’m naturally disappointed not to have been given a chance but not panicking yet.”

Last season, the 33-year-old made 27 Premier League appearances for the Gunners, scoring twice and making an assist. However, he averaged less than an hour of playing time per game, and has been somewhat surplus this season.

Rosicky has the likes of Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain competing with him for a first-team place, which has seen the Czech midfielder missing out so far.

While he didn’t make an transfer request during the summer transfer window, there’s every chance Rosicky may consider his future in January if he still isn’t playing. He has two years left on his deal with Arsenal, so he won’t want to get stuck playing in the reserves in the eve of his career.

    Wenger please give Rosicky and Campbell a chance to prove. They are very good players. We need both of this guys.

    I agree with rosicky, he is much better than Jack Wilshire and Mesut Ozil. ozil is the laziest football player in the world, he is soft and slow. wilshire is no good, holds on to the ball too long, then tries to make so crazy one two pass and gives the ball away. he is on the ground every couple minutes. no wonder he gets hurt. rosicky is just as skillfull as both of them, he can kick unlike ozil and wilshire, he has pace and can tackle and win the ball back. if we want to win the game against mancity, tell asshole wenger line up the team like that. kos,debuchy, mertz and monreal in defense. holding midfielder chambers with arteta in front of him. rm sanchez, ramsey cm and campbell lm with welbeck up front. with that pace we will tear mancity apart.

    Any team needs 16 competitive players who needs to be changed and replaced each game,Mr Wenger concentrate on only 11 of his favorite’s and come injuries, he don’t know what to do,,,some players don’t perform and are not replaced,please learn from pelegrini,,,Give all players more game time.there is good players at arsenal but their talents are wasted,,,,can be start changing our tactics,if not we will be 4th again,,,,

      agreed with you..wenger is too tensed in his trust in other players which is causing a mental block on his part…he needs to relax and take more risk

    Rosicky looks very lively when he plays, but without end product.
