Tomáš Rosický's injury troubles at Arsenal FC go on after the midfielder had more surgery on the left knee injury which has kept him out since January.
Rosický, sidelined since limping out of an FA Cup tie on 26 January, had a follow-up operation in Germany on Monday, which Arsenal described as "routine revision surgery". His tendon injury was first operated on in May. The north London club said: "Tomáš Rosický underwent routine revision surgery ... The operation went as planned and Tomáš will spend at least a few weeks convalescing in Germany. Thereafter he will follow a tailored rehabilitation programme devised by our medical team."
Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger said last month he hoped Rosický, 28, would be back before the new year. Rosický has made 44 Premier League appearances since joining the Gunners from BV Borussia Dortmund in summer 2006. The injury also caused the Czech Republic captain and playmaker to miss UEFA EURO 2008™.
