Yesterday news broke that Tomas Rosicky would miss ‘one to two months’ after undergoing surgery on his right knee.
However, in his latest team news bulletin, Arsene Wenger has confirmed the operation but said the recovery time would be longer than reported.
“Tomas has had surgery on his knee,” he said. “His agent said he will be out for one or two months, but it will be longer. How long exactly, we don’t know yet.”
Arsenal took up the option to extend the contract of the Czech international who signed from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2006.
Although it felt like he featured very little last season, he made 24 appearances, scoring three goals. He was always going to be someone who added depth rather than a first team regular, but once more the injury problems that have plagued his Arsenal career have struck again.
GWS etc etc.
