“I bet I score more than you,” says Arsenal’s Rosicky
Arsenal’s Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky believes he will be the clubs top-goalscoring midfielder and is willing to put money on it to prove it.
Rosicky is so convinced that he will score more goals this season than the six he managed last season, he is having a wager with fellow midfielder’s Cesc Fabregas and Alex Hleb.
Rosicky has scored in each of his last two games, including the third goal in Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Portsmouth at the Emirates Stadium last weekend. Like Rosicky, Hleb also has two goals but Fabregas leads the way with four goals already.
“We have talked about scoring goals in midfield - me, Cesc and Alex Hleb,” Rosicky told Arsenal.com. “We talked about preparing a bet between us.
“I hope I can win it. It includes all competitions — Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup. When you look at those competitions last year I would have been the winner.
“It will be nice to win again but the most important thing is that we win the games. It doesn’t really matter who scores.”
