Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky has played down suggestions that he could be set to leave Emirates Stadium this summer.

Criticism

Wenger came in for criticism from a section of the club's fans after an eighth campaign without any silverware and an embarrassing Capital One Cup defeat by Bradford. But Rosicky believes the manager remains the right man for the job, particularly after they came so close to overcoming eventual winners Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League. He added: "If you're on a bad run, the manager is always the first to blame. But he showed that he still has a lot to give to this team. We were playing some fine football. "If you made a table just from January till the end of the season, we would have finished 2nd behind Manchester United. So it would be a shame to change anything. "When you look at what all Bayern achieved in the season, it hurts even more that we had not knocked them out. We were eliminated on the away goals rule, otherwise it was 3-3. It was one of the moments that inspired us. "We are able to win at Bayern but then, however, to get knocked out of the cup by Bradford. That's killing us."
