Arsene Wenger has confirmed that midfielder Tomas Rosicky has come back from international duty with the Czech Republic with a knee injury and will be out for four to five weeks, report the Daily Mail. 

The injury happened during the game against Iceland and it means that Rosicky will miss the bulk of pre-season, as per the report.

Wenger said, as reported by the Mail: “Rosicky came back with a knee problem from the international Czech game against Iceland. He will be longer; four to five weeks. Welbeck will be one or two weeks before he starts to train again.”

It is a blow for the player because with a good pre-season he could have forced himself into Wenger’s plans but now he will probably have to spend most of the season as a substitute.

It will be interesting to see if Rosicky accepts this or if he decides to move so he can get regular football.

Former club Sparta Prague have been reported, as per talkSPORT, as being interested in taking him back in a similar move to Daniel Agger’s return to Brondby from Liverpool last summer.

Wenger will probably want to keep Rosicky on because the midfielder is such a useful player and he has tremendous experience....
