Arsene Wenger: 'Tomas Rosicky fits Arsenal mould perfectly'

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger praises Tomas Rosicky on his 33rd birthday, insisting that he has all the qualities he looks for in a modern footballer.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hailed Tomas Rosicky, insisting that the Czech midfielder has all the qualities that he looks for in a player.

Rosicky turned 33 today, three months into his eighth season with the Gunners following a switch from Borussia Dortmund in 2006.

Wenger told the club's official website: "First of all I believe he is a real Arsenal man because he is here for a long time.

"He is really a football player who presents the way we want to play football, because he's a team player who has pace, has a quick brain, understands the game well. I always like to have him in the team because of all these qualities."

Rosicky returned from a month on the sidelines to start in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over Napoli in the Champions League, playing just shy of an hour in a wide left role.
