Tomáš Rosický to miss Sparta Prague Europa League tie against Southampton


Former Arsenal and Czech midfield star Tomáš Rosický will not take part in his new club, Sparta’s Prague’s, Europa League away game at English club Southampton on Thursday night. The 35-year-old says that he needs more time to regain match fitness. Rosický came on for 20 minutes on Saturday in the Prague club’s 2:2 draw against Mladá Boleslav. Given an ecstatic reception by the home crowd, Rosický was unable to break the deadlock.
