BAD NEWS: Arsenal Hit With Another Midfielder Injury.

Just some days ago, we were told about the fractured left fibula of Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere. The English international sustained an injury few days to to the Community Shield and for this reason, he missed out of that clash.

That was already enough worry for the club and its fans but with this new development, tension is likely to rise considering the early stage in which the season is still in.

It is Tomas Rosicky who has joined the list of long-term absentees after undergoing a surgery on his knee. This news was revealed by press sources who claimed that the veteran midfielder will be out for at least two months. Ouch! What a blow!

According to Rosicky's agent Pavel Paska, the operation was a successful one and if all goes well, he should be back within eight weeks. He told “Tomas last Tuesday passed arthroscopic knee surgery. The recovery period is estimated at four to eight weeks.”

Another confirmation came from the chairman of the Czech Republic Football Association, Miroslav Pelt. He also had something to say about the situation: “He’s had some treatment, though not anything big, but time is against us.”

For now, Rosicky is not a regular in the Arsenal first team. Nevertheless, his presence will be missed. He is a player who puts in his heart fully into the game and also so influential in the dressing room.

His versatile nature is another reason why he will be greatly missed. He can easily deputise in several positions should some players get injured but now that he is sidelined, such services wouldn't be gotten.

Wishing him a speedy recovery and we hope he returns even stronger for us.
