Rosicky closing in on comeback

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger believes Rosicky will be back in action before the end of March after watching him in action on the pitch.

“He is working on the pitch,” he said.

“He has touched the ball for the first time this week and we are quite positive about him – maybe more than he is.

“He could be the good surprise of the season because in six or seven weeks he has a chance to be back.”
