10-07-2009

Star Czech football midfielder Tomáš Rosický, out for 18 months due to injury, is said to be planning to return to action for Arsenal in the autumn. The 28-year-old initially suffered a hamstring injury and was expected to return sooner, but then his knee tendons were also affected - a problem surgery failed to remedy. The player told Sport he could have already begun playing at the end of last season but that he understood why manager Arsene Wenger had opted for caution.
