Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has stated that he is extremely delighted to have won the FA Cup with Arsenal. This is the first major trophy won by the Czech Republic midfielder since moving to the club in the summer of 2006. Since then, Arsenal have struggled to be competitive in any major title. This time around, it was seen as a major opportunity for them to end the trophy drought as they were coming up against Hull, who were promoted from the Championship only last season. Since they were not playing against top teams like Chelsea or Manchester city, this was seen as a great opportunity for them to end the trophy drought.
They finally managed to do it after a narrow 3-2 win over Steve Bruce’s team. Rosicky played a crucial role in the whole FA Cup campaign. After finally managing to win a trophy to show for his Arsenal career, the 33-year-old expressed his delight. The future of the midfielder, though, still remains unclear because he continues to be linked with an exit along with a couple of other older players like Mikel Arteta. Recently, Spaniard Mikel Arteta stated that he would not take into account the age of the players when he was offering them new contracts.
Rosicky will be awarded only a one-year extension due to his age. “It was a very long wait for me and I’m delighted and the whole team is delighted. The whole club needed the trophy so we are glad it’s behind us. Hull started very well, they were very aggressive, they made the spaces tight for the boys to create something but you could see when the game went on they were more tired,” said the midfielder on the club’s official site. The club are now expected to kick on from this trophy.
