Tomas Rosicky’s agent has dismissed reports that the Arsenal midfielder’s career could come to a premature end as ‘nonsense’.
The former Borussia Dortmund playmaker has not played since January and last week, Czech Republic head coach, Petr Rada, revealed that Rosicky had suffered a setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury and suggested that his career could be in jeopardy.
However, the 27-year-old’s agent, Pavel Paska, told MF DNES: “It is nonsense. I am refusing to answer to canards.”
Rosicky had hoped to make his return to first-team action in September, but the player has confirmed a comeback this month is unlikely.
He told CTK: “My return is still going to take some time. Each treatment runs the risk of bringing complications.”
Of Rosicky’s current situation, Czech Republic boss Rada added: “His injury is not a light one but now I am only expecting him when Arsenal give him the green light to prepare with the team.
“We cannot estimate when he will return.”
