Tomas Rosicky – who has been injured for a year – is now back in training, according to his agent Pavel Paska.
Tomas limped off after nine minutes of the FA Cup tie against Newcastle on January 26 at Emirates Stadium.
Arsène Wenger described his injury as
“not a serious one, but a strange one”.
Ultimately it ruled Tomas out of the rest of the campaign, Euro 2008 and the start of pre-season.
Paska has revealed that Tomas is back in training with The Gunners.
Paska told Rosicky’s official website:
“It’s another positive change in his situation, and it’s a sign of hope that shows the difficult period Tomas has been going through is about to end.”
Tomas, a quick and skilful player with a powerful shot and an eye for a pass, is mainly deployed on the left of midfield but is just as happy in a central position, a role he fills for his country.
It will be a major boost to a Gunners side who have injuries to key players Fabregas, Walcott and with Eduardo just getting back – playing for the reserves – after 11 months out.
