Tomas Rosicky's agent has denied that the Czech star's career may be over and maintains the latest recovery of the injury-prone Arsenal midfielder is "going according to the plan".

Rosicky, 28, has been beset by a series of injuries since his £7million move from Borussia Dortmund in May 2006 and reports had suggested his current problems were career-threatening, and required further direct medical treatments.

The midfielder limped out of the Premier League clash with Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium in January and has not featured since, also missing Euro 2008 because of the same hamstring-related problem which has had Arsene Wenger admitting he does not know when he can next field Rosicky.

"What appeared about Tomas being hospitalised in London is complete nonsense," Rosicky's representative Pavel Paska told Czech newspaper Denik Sport.

"Tomas, as part of his recovery scheme, visits the hospital for various therapies and the same happened last time.

"A sudden setback in his health or some headaches, as I have read about somewhere, have not happened to Tomas.

"Everything is going according to the plan. Tomas' first comeback was rash, now we are treating the situation more carefully."

Paska added: "The recovery will be long-term.

"The team of specialists that cares for Tomas, has been enlarged by another specialist which means the player will be cared for at the best level."
