Rosicky extends time at Emirates


LONDON, January 5 – Tomas Rosicky, the Czech international midfielder, has signed a new contract at Arsenal, the club announced Monday without revealing the length of the deal.Rosicky, who was signed from Borussia Dortmund in 2006, is the 15th player to sign a new contract for manager Arsene Wenger since May 2009.

The 29-year-old has been rewarded for his fine form this season after missing nearly two full seasons through injuries which had threatened to end his career prematurely.

"The last two seasons haven’t been easy for me because of injuries but I feel it speaks volumes about the club’s belief in me for this to be signed, and I truly believe I have a lot left to offer the club, my team-mates and all the supporters," Rosicky said.

"It’s felt like home since I arrived here four years ago and I believe we’re on the verge of achieving something special together.

"I’m looking forward to the coming months and hope that together, we are all celebrating at the end of the season."
