Tomas Rosicky to be given new Arsenal contract if he plays 25 matches this season - reports
The 33-year-old is in his final year at the Emirates
Wednesday 13 November 2013
Tomas Rosicky will reportedly be handed a one-year contract extension at Arsenal – if the injury-plagued midfielder plays 25 matches for the club this season.
The Czech international is in the final year of his contract with the Gunners, but it is believed the extension clause will be triggered if he reaches the mark this season.
The 33-year-old is currently the fourth longest-serving player at the club, after Nicklas Bendtner, Abou DIaby and Theo Walcott, after joining from Borussia Dortmund in 2006.
Rosicky has had to endure frustrating periods to his career at the Emirates, missing the whole of the 2008/09 season because of a hamstring tendon injury.
This season, however, he has already made 11 appearances for Arsene Wenger’s team, but missed the 1-0 defeat by Manchester United on Sunday because of illness.
