Departing Arsenal star to use Euros as shop window for new club

Rosicky is not hanging his boots up just yet! by AH

Arsenal said goodbye to Arteta, Rosicky and Flamini last Sunday in what was an emotional time for all three players. Whilst it seems Flamini’s future hangs in the balance, with inconsistent reports of whether the Frenchman is leaving the club or not, both Rosicky and Arteta have definitely departed from the Gunners. It should be noted that whilst Arteta could still potentially remain at the club as a coach rather than a player, club legend Tomas Rosicky will be doing neither, as he looks towards pastures new.

Rosicky however is still looking to keep on playing after leaving Arsenal! Speaking to the media, Rosicky said that he is still fit and looking to extend his playing career for a least a few more years. As the Metro reports, Rosicky said: ‘Yes, I’m fit, I played a couple of games for the Arsenal Under-21s so I feel quite alright. At the moment I’m not thinking about retiring, I want to focus on the Euros and go from there. We [the Czechs] will be very uncomfortable for every opponent, the group is difficult but we are the type of team who have a good shape and we fight for each other. They are tournament attributes which you can use very well.’

It was a shame that we did not manage to see Little Mozart play one last final game for the club however as he said he has played a few under 21 games recently and is feeling fit enough to carry on playing professionally elsewhere. The issue with the Czech Republic international is that nobody knows just how long Rosicky will last before his next injury, which is why after 10 years of service; Arsenal finally decided that he needed to look elsewhere rather than remain on our books. At 35 years old, he still could play for a few more years, but I feel injuries may prevail.

Even though he never fully managed to flourish for the Gunners because of consistent injuries, when fit, his ability, loyalty and commitment to the club over the 10 years has made him an Arsenal legend. It is enough to show exactly why he is so respected at Arsenal and he definitely deserved his send off on Sunday. I hope that he manages to find himself another club to show that he does still have the ability the Arsenal fans were treated to, and the Euros will be a great shop window for him toprove to suitors that he can stillplay at a high level.

  1. This is the thing with Transfer windows….when there’s Lil or nothing going on, old News get repeated…. and boredom sets in

    Respect to TR7!!

    1. Hahaha ? What did you expect?
      And What difference does it make when you are moaning 90% of the time? ???

      Good luck to Rosicky!
      It would be funny if a premium league new comer were to sign him up!

  2. Never met anyone that doesn’t like Rosicky. Not many Arsenal players you can say that about nowadays.

  3. Latest rumours from Germany are claiming that Arsenal are not serious about signing Xhaka, after under-bidding for the player.
    Gladbach want €45m and Arsenal have offered €25 million
    ?? I ? knew this would happen!
    i guess that Kante is the real target, after all. ?

    1. Arsenal’s opening bid ue at between €40m and €50m, is just €25m according to German daily Bild, something which has left the Bundesliga side stunned.

      Sporting director Max Eberl was quoted as saying: “There is an offer, but that does not mean that we let Granit go.
      Arsenal have offered just €25m for Borussia Monchengladbach captain Granit Xhaka, a sum the Bundesliga side are determined not to sell for.
      Xhaka wants his future done and dusted before Euro 2016 this summer and the ball is now in Arsenal’s court to drastically increase their offer for the midfielder.

      Gladbach are ready to part with Xhaka for the right price, but Arsenal are running the risk of further clubs joining the chase by starting with such a low bid.
      It remains to be seen what Arsenal’s next move will be.

      1. @ fatboy

        To complete what the Director said,”with an offer in this range,we cannot talk seriously”..

        Chelsea,ManU,City at least one of them needs a midfielder,one might wake up tomorrow and read that Xhaka have signed for one of those…

        Then after he blossoms next season,Wenger will shamelessly come out and say “we tried…..bla,bla”

        We are lucky it seems we are the only one RUMOURED to be interested for now….

      2. So the report went from:

        Xhaka agrees personal terms with Arsenal
        Gladbach almost and certain to agree a fee with Arsenal
        Gladbach are waiting for a replacement before confirming the deal
        Arsenal have underbid for Xhaka

        This is a joke. I’ve been hearing about Xhaka since January in almost the same way I’ve heard about Podolski until we signed him in the summer. I’ve see many sources saying its a done deal, one of them an actual Arsenal insider. If it’s otherwise then that would be a shame as well and I would be left stunned not Gladbach.

  4. We have a habit of bidding significantly lower than the other party’s valuation. atleast we havent had any major blunder buys like all of teh other top english teams. the truth is, in some situations if we had bid 2-5 million more (luis suarez) we could have gotten some pretty good players (sigh).

    i am more optimistic about this summer, however, i really think we are ready to spend more money than Arsene is usually comfortable spending. I am not sure Xhaka is the right man for us, but he a) young b) proven c)full international d)LEADER, and that makes him seem worth a decent price

  5. Rosicky without his injuries can last at least 3years..
    And I won’t be surprised if he suddenly shakes off his injuries after leaving Arsenal…

  6. gool luck to rosicky.once a gunner always a gunner hope they make it to knock out phases or final will be superb for him
