Tomas Rosicky has won a trophy with every club he's played for - except Arsenal. This season, the Czech international is determined to put that right.

The 29-year-old is now one of the elder statesmen of Arsène Wenger's squad and his experience will be vital in a dressing room that has lost Sol Campbell, William Gallas and Mikael Silvestre this summer.

Rosicky's ability to turn his marker and turn a game will be even more important of course and you sense this could be a special season for him. Last term was the Czech's 'comeback' campaign after an 18-month lay-off so 2010/11 could see Rosicky push on.

The midfielder points out that Arsenal were in the hunt for silverware until April and believes that a minor improvement throughout the squad will see him realise his burning ambition of lifting a major trophy at Emirates Stadium.

"You could see that we were there almost the whole of last season. We were knocking on the door," Rosicky told

"But we were still missing something so let's hope we learn the lessons and do not make the mistakes we did last season.

"Every year we want to be successful. We are in a big club, so we want to be champions.

"Winning a trophy is definitely a big ambition for me. In every team I have ever played I have always won something, so it was always my aim to do it here as well."
