Current position suiting me nicely – Arsenal’s Rosicky

Tomas Rosicky feels the current position he is taking in midfielder is suiting he, and the Arsenal team, perfectly.

The Czech international has been a key part of the Gunners’ resurgence in the second half of the season and indicates that it may have something to do with finding a nice niche as an attacking player in Arsene Wenger’s midfield of three which includes Mikel Arteta and Alex Song.

“I’m in the advanced position of the three, looking to get in between the opposition’s midfield and defence,” Rosicky told the Official Arsenal Magazine.

“When we have the ball I’m starting quite close to Robin (van Persie) up front, and after that I can come a bit deeper and stretch the pitch out.

“I can’t say for sure whether this has made the whole difference, but I would certainly agree that what the boss is asking [of me] at the moment suits me nicely.

“The whole season has gone quite well for me, but I was injured twice in the first few months so couldn’t keep up sustained form. I’m enjoying the rhythm the manager has given me now.”
