Tomas Rosicky has dropped a hint that he could leave Arsenal after admitting that he is frustrated with the limited role this season.
The 34-year-old has only started in five league matches, the last one being against Everton in March. Overall, he has made 15 appearances in the league, scoring two goals and managing one assist in the process.
Rosicky's substitute appearances have also been limited as he remained unused on several occasions this term. The Gunners manager Arsene Wenger had earlier admitted that his future will be resolved in May. However, the Czech Republican international admitted the substitute's role is "difficult."
"I can't tell you anything at the moment. When the season finishes, we'll see if I will continue for another season," Rosicky said, as quoted by Evening Standard.
"I would rather not talk about it at the moment. Being on the bench is difficult - every player wants to be involved. When you're not getting the games you want or if you are not even part of it, it's difficult for every player."
Arsenal had a difficult start to this season. However, the north London club's impressive run in this calendar year has seen them sit third in the league table. Rosicky remains hopeful the Emirates club will avoid this campaign's early errors in order to give them the much needed boost to challenge Chelsea for the title next season.
"There are a lot of factors why it wasn't there early in the season. We were searching for the right formation. You could see [Mesut] Ozil on the right so many times in the first half of the season and in the second half he didn't play there at all," the midfielder said.
"It's the same as Alexis [Sanchez], who was sometimes playing as a striker but you haven't seen him playing there since."
"You could see that he was searching for the right mixture and it's been much better in the second part of the season. Now we know how to line up next season and we can start on the right foot," Rosicky concluded.
