On 12 March 2012, Tomas Rosicky signed a new contract with Arsenal.
The Little Mozart first signed for Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in 2006 having spent five years in Germany and developing a cult hero status.
The Czech international made his Arsenal debut on 8 August 2006 against Dinamo Zagreb in a Champions League qualifier, which the Gunners won 3-0, and he scored his first goal just over a month later against Hamburg.
The midfielder went on to score six goals over all competitions during his first season in north London. However, the next season saw him suffer an injury to his knee – the first of many that would go on to blight his career.
Rosicky would go on to sustain a total of nine injuries while at Arsenal. However, despite being injury prone, the fans loved his style of play and ability to control the game.
In 2012, he signed a new contract with the club and went on to make a total of 170 League appearances.
However, the injuries continued and a decade after he joined, Arsenal allowed Rosicky to leave on a free. He returned to former club Sparta Prague where he remains.
