Tomas Rosicky Returns To Arsenal

Tomas Rosicky has returned to Arsenal as he looks to make a full recovery from a thigh injury

Tomas Rosicky has returned to Arsenal as he recovers from the thigh injury that wrecked his Euro 2016 campaign.

The midfielder, who left the Emirates Stadium over the summer after his contract expired, picked up the injury during the Czech Republic’s 2-2 draw with Croatia in the European Championship.

And, despite ending his 10-year career with the Gunners at the end of last season, the midfielder has returned as he works towards his recovery.

Despite becoming a peripheral figure at the club during his final years, Rosicky remains popular at the their training HQ – underlined by Arsenal’s gesture of helping him back on the road to fitness.

Rosicky is yet to find a new club but has been linked with an emotional return to his boyhood club Sparta Prague.

The 35-year-old made close to 250 appearances for Arsene Wenger during his time in north London, helping the club to two FA Cup wins.

But Rosicky’s final season at the Emirates was blighted by injuries, he could only manage one substitute appearance in the FA Cup against Burnley and picked up an injury within three minutes of coming on the pitch.

The Czech playmaker joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2006 and was the most expensive player in Bundesliga history when BVB bought him for £18m in 2001.

Given the nickname ‘The Little Mozart’, because of his ability to pull the strings in midfield, Rosicky was given a warm reception during Arsenal’s last game of the season against Aston Villa, even though he rarely featured in the twilight years of his stint at the Emirates.
