Tomás Rosicky immediately puts a point behind his career, according to his current employer Sparta Prague announces via official channels. The 37-year-old midfielder says that he has more and more physical difficulties to come along, so he decides not to return to the top Czech club after the winter break.
After a lot of thought, I came to the conclusion that my body can no longer give what professional football requires. I would like to thank Sparta Prague for being allowed to be steamed up here for large clubs and for being able to finish my career here, where I would have liked it to be,”says Rosicky on Sparta Prague’s website,” I knew that this was coming.
In my head I wanted to play matches, but my body sputtered against. I’ve had a fantastic career, I loved football and would do it again “, according to the 104-fold Czech international. The attacking midfielder was trained at Sparta Prague and left the club for Borussia Dortmund in 2001. After five years in Germany, Rosicky signed with Arsenal, where he played until the summer of 2016. A year and a half ago, the Gunners had him return to Sparta Prague without transfer. This season he played another twelve matches for the Czech top club.
