Arsenal players Jack Wilshere and Sead Kolasinac spoke to the club’s official website and recalled the legend’s career, who played 246 teams for the Gunners during his ten year tenure at the North London.

Wilshere played alongside Tomas Rosicky for the better part of his career and admits that he was such an influencing character to be around and payed his respect.

“This is me being deadly serious, he is one of the best I’ve played with in terms of what I wanted to be as a player,” Wilshere told Arsenal Player. “He picked the ball up and he drove at the opposition, not many players do that from midfield.”

Also Arsenal’s new signing Sead Kolasinac had his say on the former Gunners star. Though Kolasinac never played alongside Rosicky, he had a lot to say about the Czech legend.
“I remember him from the time when he was at Dortmund,” Kolasinac told “He was a very good footballer, also when he came here. You’d only ever see him doing good things, either when you read about him or watched him play,” he added.
