Rosický to miss start of season with injury


The Czech soccer captain Tomáš Rosický will miss the start of next season due to injury, the manager of his club Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, told journalists. The midfielder, who is 34, was injured in a Euro 2016 qualifier between the Czech Republic and Iceland last month and will be out for four to five more weeks. There has been speculation that his former club Sparta Prague are trying to secure a deal for Rosický, who has signed a one-year contract extension with Arsenal but is not a regular starter with the English Premier League side.
