Rosicky coming back – Can he still do a job for Arsenal?

Rosicky to Return for Arsenal, but is this his Last Hurrah? by AT

With Arsenal in the midst of an injury crisis, especially in midfield, the Gunners are set to receive a massive boost on the injury front as veteran midfielder Tomas Rosicky is set to return to full training in three weeks time, and could be available for selection by mid-January.

The Czech Republic international hasn’t featured for Arsenal so far this season, after suffering a serious knee injury while on international duty in the summer but is all set to return to first-team action and give Arsene Wenger some much needed alternatives in midfield. The Gunners boss confirmed the imminent return of Rosicky, saying: “In three weeks he [Rosicky] could be back in full training.”

Despite having not made a single appearance for Arsenal so far this season, I believe that Tomas can make a significant contribution to the team in the second half of the campaign. He can play in central midfield, behind the striker or on either flank, giving the team more options in attack and his energy will surely give the team more dynamism going forward. Not to mention, his experience will be vital as Arsenal look set to fight for the title.

But with his contract set to expire in the summer, this might well be Tomas Rosicky’s last hurrah at the Emirates. But in my opinion, I really think his services can be retained. Despite being 35 years of age, the Little Mozart is still as explosive as he was when he first joined in 2006 and still possesses the ability to run at defenders, find a defence-splitting pass and also has a good shot on him.

In addition, he is not a player who will expect a hefty wage package or a guarantee of regular first-team action to stay. The fact that he is in his tenth year at the Emirates speaks volumes of his love for the club. Besides, he is adored by Arsenal fans far and wide and it will surely be a good touch to see him retire as an Arsenal player.

    it would make sense to keep him to add squad depth if he proves he still as something to give. flamini as third choice was a great keep by wenger as he is doing a job when called upon this would allow players like zalelem and crawley to get first team xp whilst rosicky looks after their spot.

    Honestly!………. Everybody (not all really) Loves the LiL Mozart……….but unfortunately, injuries jave hampered the entirety of his stay….. And he’s 30 something now, with his best years behind him….

    A part of me wants him to stay, the other part just wants to give him a standing ovation in a final match for Arsenal ……he’s a Legend!

    Does Samper from Barca have the quality to join Arsenal. He’s a defensive midfielder of the Xabi Alonso mould. He’s currently playing in 2nd or 3rd division for Barca team. This is the type of gem we could be looking for as a backup to Coquelin. Have a loan deal with option to make it permanent.

    Of course he can! He plays with the energy of an 18 year old boy!

    Pretty sure Rosicky will leave Arsenal in the summer. Hopefully he still has that magic in him to add his piece to a succesful season puzzle until then! One of my favorite players of all time.

    Well… Consider yourself touched then mate,
    Rosicky is 35 and injury prone, he has all but already retired.

    If anyone is seriously expecting him to return in mid January and for him to put in star performances like year’s gone by!
    Are completely deluded, You have more chance of finding Father Christmas stuck in your chimney! ?

    The reality is that Rosicky even if recovered, won’t be match fit until mid February and thats only if he doesn’t have any Danny Setbeck’s!… Which is more than likely that he will.

    So basically,
    i won’t be expecting any miracles from Ro-Sicky!
    This is just more blah blah hype to cushion the lack of transfers in the summer and probably the winter one too.

    Rosicky the “master space finder and attack booster”, one of my favourite Arsenal’ attacking midfielder ( David silva and Iniesta like). I would love to see him back in the team. Respect!
