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.
The Czech Republic will certainly see some more of the Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky according to the manager of the national team – Michal Bilek. Many have been suggestions that the days of the Arsenal midfielder is numbered due to a succession of injury problems, which have also prevented him from regularly appearing for the club team as well. When the player last played for the national team in the Euro 2012, he has said that he is now considering his future with the national team. Bilek has said that he thinks that Rosicky still has the desire to play for the national team, and he does not doubt his motivation one little bit.
Rosicky has been slowly becoming involved in the club football once again. He recently scored in the Champions league match for Arsenal, which have sparked suggestions that he is once again getting back to his best. Rosicky is one of the best footballers of the current generation for the Czech Republic. Bilek has dismissed suggestions that he does not want to consider the midfielder for the World Cup qualifying matches because he still thinks of him as an important member within the squad. The Czech Republic are undefeated in the last three matches and will be confident ahead of the friendly with Turkey next month.
“Everything I’ve yet to consider. I feel it, he still has the motivation to play for the national team. While it will take a while to get used to wrestling mode, but I’m glad he’s fit. Participants voiced by him: I do not know if I’ll continue in the Nationals. I understand his coach (Wenger) when not pleased with the fact that Thomas goes to EURO, Apak is five months out of the game. Again, but do not expect that it would come to this to get a recommendation not to ride,” said Bilek.
The Czech Republic national team manager Michal Bilek has confirmed that the Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky will not be part of the friendly against Ukraine. The Czech Republic will be playing against Ukraine in a friendly match on Wednesday. Ahead of this match, the manager Michal Bilek has given out his 19 man squad that will be facing Ukraine. One of the high profile players missing from this match is the Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky. The manager has confirmed that the 31-year-old has not recovered from the Achilles tendon injury suffered during the group stages of the Euro 2012.
Tomas Rosicky is widely known to be one of the best players for the Czech Republic national team during the past decade. However, he has suffered a lot of injury problems during his stellar career. His latest injury came in the form of the Achilles tendon problem that made him unavailable for the quarter-final match in the Euro 2012. The Czech Republic were ultimately knockout of the tournament from the quarter-final stage after they lost to Portugal. Speaking ahead of the match with Ukraine, Michal Bilek confirmed that Tomas Rosicky will not be playing any part in this match.
“Tomas is not in a good shape. We’ll be glad if he joins us after the Denmark game,” said the Czech Republic national team manager. There have been suggestions that the 31-year-old will finally announce retirement from the international scene in order to concentrate on his club career. He is almost certain to miss the match against Denmark that will take place on September. This is extremely crucial match for the Czech Republic because it will decide the outcome of the first World Cup qualifiers. Czech Republic will be hoping to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup that will take place in Brazil.
