Arsenal’s little Mozart Tomas Rosicky was complaining about not getting any game time before the Christmas transfer window, but it seems that Arsene Wenger threw him a few bones by putting our Number 7 on the pitch for a few games. The Czech’s contract was set to end in June but Arsene Wenger took up the Gunners contractual option to extend his stay for one more season, but since that happened Rosicky was once again put out to pasture.
He does not sound very happy with the situation. “Since the moment Arsene Wenger used the option in my contract, I haven’t even been on the bench.” he said in The Express. “I am laughing, but it’s not funny.
“It’s frustrating but I am a professional. Even if you lose your place, you must still be prepared because the situation can change.
“I’ll start the summer preparation with Arsenal and that’s the whole of my plan for the time being.”
Well it would seem that Wenger knew exactly what he was doing when extended Rosicky’s contract, but I am having trouble understanding his motives. Arsenal have around EIGHT other midfielders ahead of Tomas in the pecking order, so why not let him leave so that he can finish his career playing every week, as he wishes?
