Sparta Prague central midfielder Michal Sacek has revealed that he would like to follow his team mate Tomas Rosicky’s career path by playing for Arsenal.
The ex Gunners star returned to his first club Sparta in 2016, while Sacek was promoted to the first team squad at the same time. The 21 year old says he would like to grace the turf at the Emirates at some point during his career. He is quoted by Calciomercato.com as saying:
“Tomas has always been my model. It’s great to be in [a] team with him. After each game, he gives me advice and helps me analyze the performance. I wonder if one day I can follow in his footsteps on the pitch of the Emirates Stadium.“
Whether that ever becomes a reality for the Czech Under 21 international, we will have to wait and see. In Sacek’s first full season as a first team player he made 20 appearances, and he has started five times already this campaign.
As a holding midfield player though, he plays a different position to the attack minded Rosicky, and consequently he has not scored or provided an assist so far for Sparta. He is however complimenting the former Arsenal midfielder well, keeping the team defensively secure while Rosicky makes forays forward in the middle of the park.
