The 37-year-old announced that he would be hanging up his boots last week after admitting that his body was no longer up to the challenges of top-level football.
The former Arsenal star won two FA Cups during his time at The Emirates and forged a successful partnership with now-Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas at the north London side.
Rosicky spent 10 years at Arsenal between 2006 and 2016 and was a firm favourite amongst Gunners fans.
Now, Chelsea midfielder Fabregas has taken to social media to pay tribute to Rosicky after his decision to hang up his boots.
Fabregas posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “I have played with many players over the years but I can tell you that on his day Tomas was up there with the best.
“He had such great intelligence on the football pitch and awareness of others around him.
“It was an honour to play with you my friend and the game will be at a loss with your retirement.
“I am very happy football gave me a proper friend like you. Good luck to you and your family in the future brather! ❤️👏🏻 #Rosicky #Brather”
Fabregas joined Arsenal’s London rivals Chelsea from Barcelona back in the summer of 2014 and has won two Premier League titles.
The Spanish midfielder will be expecting to feature for Chelsea when the Blues return to Premier League action on Boxing Day with a home clash against Brighton.
The west London side are aiming to try and climb the Premier League table after having found themselves some way behind Manchester City in the race for the title.
