After a furious of suffering from numerous injuries, Tomas Rosicky is finally up to his best and he has been playing regular football with his club team Arsenal. He is one of the important members of the Czech Republic national team, who have failed to qualify for the World Cup 2014. Even though the 33-year-old will not be featuring at the World Cup, national team manager Pavel Vrba does not see the reason why the midfielder should continue playing until he is 36 years of age. As a result, Vrba believes that the Euro 2016 will be the last major tournament for Rosicky if Czech Republic qualify for it.
Preparations have already started in order to not get disappointed for the second major tournament running. This has been one of the talented Czech Republic teams in recent years with the presence of players like Petr Cech and Rosicky, but they failed to live up to expectations partly because most of the players are ageing. Vrba was recently appointed as the national team manager. A run of two victories in the final qualifying matches against Malta and Bulgaria were not enough to prevent Czech Republic from going out of the competition in the qualifying stages itself.
Rosicky has been a crucial player for Arsenal this season, as they continue to dominate the table.
“It’s all about health. I see no reason why Tomas should not play on until he is 38. Pavel Horvath is also older, but he is one of the key players over in Plzen, and the people love him. When I saw Tomas last, I saw no reason for him not to make it. We met with Mr Wenger, which for us was very informative. He himself said that Tomas has had one of his best phases during his time at Arsenal,” said Vrba.
