Interview

‘I was proud to play here and the fans sensed it’

He established himself as a firm fans’ favourite during his decade with us, and Tomas Rosicky says he’ll “never regret spending so many years here”.

Our former No 7 returned to Emirates Stadium to be inducted as a member of the 100 Club during our match against Everton in February, and was introduced to rapturous applause. 

“Obviously it’s always great to be here, because I was here for so many years, so it was great,” he told Arsenal Player. “It was a bit of a surprise, I didn’t expect such a nice welcome again! 

“I always had a great relationship with the fans. When I was playing, I was always proud to play for Arsenal and I think they could see it.

“I enjoyed very much playing for Arsenal. The way he [Arsène Wenger] sees football is great for the players. He lets you express yourself, and the pass and move style, which I always liked, was a perfect fit for me and for Arsenal. 

“I only have good memories - it was great and I’ll never regret spending so many years here.”
