Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern waved a emotional farewell to one of their longest serving players at the weekend and they’ve had their attention grasped by his comments, which hint towards his next career move.
The Times quotes 36-year-old midfielder Tomas Rosicky as stating he has no plans to hang up his playing boots just yet, with the former Borussia Dortmund ace hoping his exploits at Euro 2016 earn him a move.
‘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.’
Rosicky’s last few years have been dampened by injury problems, which was a sad ending for a player who spent a decade in north London wearing the club’s iconic number 7 shirt.
If he finds fitness again, our landlord believes he’ll be a huge addition to any side and fancies the player to return to the Bundesliga or his homeland this summer.
