Tomas Rosicky may well have played his last game in an Arsenal shirt, with the injury he picked up against Burnley revealed to be far worse than originally thought, according to the Daily Mail.
The Czech international has struggled with injuries throughout his career, and they’ve meant he’s barely featured for the first team over the last two seasons at all. He made his first appearance in months against Burnley, but picked up a thigh injury within minutes of being on the field. It was initially unclear how long he’d be out for, but reports now suggest he could miss the rest of the season.
The fact that Rosicky’s contract expires this summer (via the Daily Mail) means that could spell the end of his Arsenal career, and the small cameo against Burnley in the FA Cup could be the last we see of him.
The 35-year-old has always been popular at the club, even if he hasn’t always been a key part of our setup. He’s scored some truly monumental and important goals during his time in north London, and his professionalism among other fantastic qualities has really endeared him to the fans.
It would be a real shame for Rosicky’s Arsenal career to peter out like this, as he’s been a fantastic servant for us over the years. We’ve barely seen hide nor hair of him over the last year though, and he looks destined to fade out of Arsenal existence rather than going out with a bang like he deserves.

Hopefully the reports are wrong and he’s able to make at least one appearance before the end of the season, or even stays on as a coach at the club after calling time on his career.
