Arsenal Legend Rosicky told Arsenal.com about his London derby goal v Tottenham, He said: “First of all it was a great goal and it was also very early in the game, so it was after just two minutes,” the 37-year-old told Arsenal Player. “You could see that everyone in the stadium was in shock.
“It was so quiet and such a surreal moment that you could only hear the Arsenal fans 100 metres behind you. The rest of the stadium was completely quiet. I love this goal and what happened after. It is a great memory.
“I always knew they were special games and I always understood the meaning of the derby, because I always played in the derbies when I was at Sparta Prague and Dortmund, where there is a big derby against Schalke.
“I always understood the meaning of the derby and I knew what it meant for people here. For me, it was always a special game. I was fortunate that I could score some nice goals against them. Maybe I will see if I still have some boots in my locker for this game!”
