Wenger 'devastated' by Rosický setback

Arsenal FC will conclude their UEFA Champions League Group H campaign at Olympiacos FC without midfielder Tomáš Rosický, who is expected to be sidelined for around a month with a groin injury.

Arsenal FC will conclude their UEFA Champions League Group H campaign at Olympiacos FC on Wednesday without Czech midfielder Tomáš Rosický, who is expected to be sidelined for a month with a groin injury.

'Devastated'
Rosický only returned to action in September after a persistent hamstring problem rendered him unavailable for 18 months. He has since appeared in four of Arsenal's five Group H matches but will miss Wednesday's concluding fixture, from which Olympiacos need a point to progress alongside the Gunners. "Tomáš Rosický is out for a while," said manager Arsène Wenger after seeing the 29-year-old forced off at half-time of Saturday's 2-0 defeat of Stoke City FC. "He's devastated and I am as well."
