Tomas Rosicky returns home

Little Mozart has come back to his Mitteleuropan origins.

Tomas Rosicky, about whom I cannot possibly say enough good things, has found a new club after leaving Arsenal at the end of last season, and it is a good thing. Here is the announcement:

The Czech international has joined Sparta Prague, the club where he grew up. From age 8 to 21, Rosicky was a Maroon, and now he is back at age 35. It is always awesome when a player returns to where he more or less began, and I’m certain that both the Sparta faithful and Mr. Rosicky are pleased to reunite.

Personally, this move makes me giddy inside, and I hope that Rosicky, even at his age, can somehow dominate the Czech First League. It’s really too bad that Tottenham Hotspur aren’t in that League, because that’s a guaranteed two or three goals a season for him, but maybe they can work out some kind of club swap for a week.

All the best, Mr. Rosicky.
