Tomas Rosicky didn’t play for the Czech Republic yesterday and it is understood that he wasn’t available because of an injury that he picked up in the match against Turkey.
There is no official word from the club yet.
Rosicky spoke to the media, and had this to say:
I couldn’t do any sharp movements, I couldn’t sprint, If I tried to play at one tempo, I wouldn’t make any difference for the team. I’ll come back to London and we’ll see. The doctor said I have something swollen between the muscles.
Rosicky now joins a long list of injured players at Arsenal and it is highly unlikely he will feature in the game against Hull City this Saturday. Rosicky has appeared 6 times for the Gunners in all competitions this season.
With Ozil out injured for three months and Rosicky now out along with Ramsey and Arteta, it really leaves us very thin in midfield.
The Ox, Santi and Jack are the only available options at the moment. It doesn’t look good at all. All the above three played in at least one of the two games for their country and given their injury history it would be a massive risk to bank on their fitness ahead of a busy schedule.
