Rosicky plots Arsenal recovery

Next Story

Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky is confident the club can instantly bounce back from their 8-2 defeat at the hands of Manchester United.

The Gunners have an extra week to reflect on the defeat at Old Trafford due to the international break, but Arsene Wenger hasn't wasted any time in shaking things up at the Emirates.

Wenger made five senior signings between the defeat and 11pm deadline on August 31st, adding strength to the defence, midfield and attack in north London.

Czech international Rosicky is confident the Gunners are more than capable of turning things around, and warns pundits and supporters alike not to write the club off at this early stage in the season.

"We are at the very beginning of the season and there is still plenty of time to turn things around completely," Rosicky told


"Up until now we always had good starts and finished badly. Maybe it will turn around and we will have a successful season. We must shake it off and respond in the next game."

The 30-year-old has experienced plenty of highs and lows in football after more than a decade in the game, but the weekend defeat was like nothing the former Borussia Dortmund midfielder has felt before.

However, moving on from the defeat involves a simple philosophy of starting over again, something the side will need to do quickly with just one point to their name in the Barclays Premier League thus far.

"I thought I had experienced everything in football but I was wrong. It was the worst hammering I have experienced in football," he said.

"There is probably no sense in commenting on the game after such a hammering. The best you can do is to forget and start from the scratch.

"We will definitely discuss it when everyone returns from international duty and there is no point about speaking about it now."
