Twitter Reacts As Arsene Wenger Gives Positive News On Wilshere Injury But Confirms Rosicky Is 6 Weeks Out

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky will be out for six weeks due to injury sustained during the FA Cup win against Burnley. The player was seen for the first time this season in the 71st Minute of the game against Burnley, however, he managed to injure himself in the little time that he played.

According to the Mirror, Rosicky will now be taking tests and scans to measure the extent of his injury. The injury will be a major setback for the player who is 35 years of age. It will be tough for him to re establish himself as the key player amongst the Gunners.

As such retirement may be an option for the player as considering his age and with the thigh injury he now suffered, it will be tough to get back into the same form as he would have been few years back.

“It’s a thigh problem [for Rosicky]. How deep is the problem we don’t know. He has a scan today. We’ll know a lot more about it tonight.”

Wenger also explained that he’s assured England manager, Roy Hodgson, that Jack Wilshere’s recovery is still going to plan.

“That’s the wrong information,” retorted the boss when quizzed on whether the 23-year-old had suffered another setback.

“He’s looking quite good. Overall, I had a short chat with Roy Hodgson about him and assured him he’s doing well.

“I’m a bit cautious [to put a timescale on his return], I would say four weeks.”
