    Wherever he went, he was loved. At Prague Sparta, Borussia Dortmund, and Arsenal in London, fans admired him. And, last but not least, he was a role-model for the proud supporters of the Czech national team, where, after Pavel Nedved, he wore the captain’s armband.

    Tomáš Rosický started his stellar career in his native Prague, at ČKD Kompresory Praha. His father, Jiří Rosický senior, played in Sparta in the 1970s, and when his brother Jiří Rosický junior was transferred to Letna, Tomáš went with him aged then just seven. Sparta knew even back then what an extraordinary talent they had on their hands. His first Sparta coach, Jan Hroneš, admitted himself that "Tomas was a gifted boy, who saw more than his opponent, teammates, and coaches."

    Tomáš Rosický was always destined for the world stage. He played just 41 games in the Czech league before Borussia Dortmund came calling. Rosicky moved there after winning two titles with Sparta. He was only 20 years old and the amount paid by the German club at that time is still a record transfer free for a Czech player.

    In his first season, he won the Bundesliga with Dortmund. At the same time, he played in the final of the UEFA Cup (today's Europa League), as Dortmund came up just short against Feyenoord. Two years later, he narrowly missed the finals of the European championship in Portugal with the national team.

    Dortmund then began to hit financial problems, and after five years in Germany, where he made 149 appearances, Tomas went to the world-renowned English Premier League. Ahead of the 2006 World Cup in Germany, Arsene Wenger chose Tomas as the team’s successor to Robert Pires.

    Unfortunately, Tomas's stellar career began to be hit by injuries. The Gunners had to do without him for one and a half seasons because of a hamstring problem. Still, he spent an unforgettable ten years in the north of London. With Arsenal, he twice won the FA Cup, and with his constructive play, imaginative passes, beautiful shots, and especially as an all-round good person, he has written himself in the hearts of the fans forwever.

    In 2016 the "Little Mozart", a nickname Tomas pciked up during his career thanks to his conducting skills, returned to Letna. At Sparta he added a further dozen starts to his 41 league appearances before bidding farewell to his professional football and star career.
