Tomas Rosicky's agent has labelled reports that the Arsenal midfielder's career could come to a premature end as 'nonsense'.
The former Borussia Dortmund playmaker has not featured for the Gunners since January and remains sidelined after undergoing hamstring surgery in May.
Last week, Czech Republic head coach Petr Rada revealed that Rosicky had suffered a setback in his recovery from injury, and recent reports in his homeland have suggested that his career could be in jeopardy.
However, the 27-year-old's agent, Pavel Paska, told MF DNES: "It is nonsense. I am refusing to answer to canards."
Rosicky had been pencilled in to make his return to first-team action in September, but the player has confirmed a comeback this month is unlikely.
He told CTK: "My return is still going to take some time. Each treatment runs the risk of bringing complications."
Of Rosicky's current fitness, Czech Republic boss Rada added: "His injury is not a light one but now I am only expecting him when Arsenal give him the green light to prepare with the team.
"We cannot estimate when he will return."
