Tomas Rosicky says it is an honour to sign a new contract with Arsenal. The Czech Republic captain has committed his future to the Gunners and is delighted to do so.
He said: “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.
“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.”
Manager Arsène Wenger added: “I’ve always been a big admirer of Tomas’ abilities and am delighted he’s chosen to commit his future to the Club. I believe he is an exceptional player, a natural footballer who is technically top class.
“He plays the style of football we champion here and shares completely our philosophy. He is always ready to work for the sake of the Club, always willing to put the team first. I have huge respect for him.”
Rosicky, 31, has had a fabulous spell in the team, which has seen him score twice in the last three games, against Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan.
Rosicky joined Arsenal in May 2006 from Borussia Dortmund and has featured 156 times for Wenger’s side since then, scoring 19 goals. In his 28 appearances so far this season, Rosicky has been a key fixture in the heart of the Gunners’ midfield.
