Tomas Rosicky has signed a contract extension with Arsenal – but I feel it’s a piece of news that might polarise opinion amongst Arsenal fans.
On one hand you have the club showing loyalty to a player who has worked his socks off to return from a career-threatening injury and appears to be a good role model for the younger players both on and off the pitch.
But on the other you have a player being rewarded for very little contribution to the club’s success in the past two and a half seasons.
So is Rosicky’s contract extension a good thing or a bad thing for Arsenal?
Personally I’m a bit of a sentimental soul so seeing one of Arsenal’s most experienced players and Cesc Fabregas’ mate get the opportunity to stay at the club makes me very happy indeed.
I feel his ability to work through what was sure to have been a depression and difficult time while he was injured illustrated his character and indicated his committment to the Arsenal cause.
Plus, he certainly knows how to wear a scarf.
