No quick return in sight, says Rosický
Czech football captain Tomáš Rosický says he won’t be back on the field in the immediate future, as he continues to struggle with a mysterious injury that has kept him out of action since the end of January. Rosický told the daily Sport his hamstring was somehow stuck, putting a greater burden on the rest of his body. Twice he has started running training and twice the problem has flared up again. The midfield maestro said he had been spending so much time on the exercise bike he could sign up for the Race of Peace, a now defunct cycle race which was a kind of Eastern Bloc equivalent of the Tour de France.
