Arsenal’s Tomas Rosicky has penned a new 12-month deal that will see him commit his future to the club. The 33-year old- who played an intricate role in the Gunner’s 4 -1 win over Sunderland on Saturday- summed up his magnificent display with a brilliant strike in the first-half.
It should come as no surprise that the Czech Republic international has been awarded with a new contract, as he has been playing some of his best football since joining the premier league side in the summer of 2006, from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.
The new contract will see the midfielder continue earning his initial £80,000-a-week until the end of next season, with the option of an additional year highly likely.
Speaking during a post-match interview, Arsene Wenger broke the news of the agreement saying:
“Tomas Rosicky will stay. We have an agreement with him and it will come out soon. I am absolutely adamant he has to stay at the club.”
The Frenchman further went on to praise the play-maker stating:
“I think he is one of the players who plays the game of give and move. He is a great accelerator of the game. When the ball comes to him, it goes into second gear and that is something I admire in him.”
The new deal will come as a huge boost to Wenger’s side as the midfielder has proved of the essence particularly in high-profile matches.
