Arsenal - Tomas Rosicky Pens New Deal

Arsenal - Tomas Rosicky Pens New Deal

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has been enjoying a fine run of form in recent matches, and now he`s enjoying a new contract with Arsenal Football Club.

Rosicky has had many injury problems since joining Arsenal and in turn that has hampered his form, but a sustained run in the side over the last few weeks have shown us just what a fine footballer he is, and now the Czech Republic captain has been rewarded with a new deal.

Speaking with the official club website the Little Mozart expressed his delight.

It's a great honour to sign a new deal with Arsenal, I love the Club and am proud to wear the Arsenal shirt. It's felt like home since I arrived six years ago and I couldn't be happier to commit my future to the team. Said Rosicky

'The manager, my team-mates, the staff and the supporters - everyone plays their part in making this a great Club, and I feel privileged to be a part of it. I believe we have a really talented group of players and, together with the manager, the future looks bright. It's always been my goal to win trophies here at Arsenal, and I will fight hard to achieve my dreams here.'

It wasn`t that long ago Gooners would have been forgiven for thinking it might be time to cash in what chips we have left and move on, but Tomas has worked hard and is now one of the vital cogs in the machine that has seen us move to within a potential point of Tottenham, whose best team in 50 years is starting to show its cracks.

"that has seen us move to within a potential point of Tottenham, whose best team in 50 years is starting to show its cracks." Cracks? More like a gaping canyons..

Happy for him. I remember when he signed right before the World Cup and then the very first game I watched him in (the same world cup) he smashed in an absolute screamer from 35 yards. It is a shame about the injuries but that has only served to make him hungrier! Lets hope the form continues. He is such a likable guy that never stops running and never says die. He deserves this.

Not as far as I can tell Niko. We don't usually give up any info without a fight.

According to the Newcastle rag tag excuse for a magazine its 2 years. Have no idea why Arsenal.com wouldn't give us this info? Maybe they don't want the world to know that they just gave a 31 year old a new 25 year contract.

Heh, goal tonight would be a nice way to celebrate his new deal, now that he's found his scoring boots let's hope it's given him impetus til the seasons' end, hopefully all the time out injured will give him an indian summer in the latter years of his career, much like Monsieur Diaby a lot of faith needs repaying here.

Seeing RVP and Rosicky this season has given me hope regarding Diaby. There is no doubt that he has the potential to be the best midfielder this club has ever seen. Would love to see what he can do if he just had 6 months injury free. Your point Nico is what gives me hope regarding RVP. He owes the club and the fans the same faith we showed in him during all his years out injured.

It should be a 2 year deal, I don't think Wenger has changed his policy of giving 32 year olds more than a year at a time (which means Rosicky at 31 gets 2 years). I'm pleased for Rosicky, there were some doubts when he replaced Ramsey in the starting 11, but he has been fabulous since then. After RvP, he is the next player who's had some doubts about whether he can play after a series of injuries. I really really hope Diaby is the next, who can play a few games without getting inured.

The .Com site said nothing about the contract tenure but I saw it on Newsnow that it was a one year extension, quoting sources close to the player. Who/what to believe? I dunno.
