The Czech Republic international has made just three Premier League appearances for Arsenal this season, having spent most of his time shuttling in and out of the treatment room.
With Rosicky now fit enough to take his place on the bench for the Gunners, the midfielder told CTK that he hoped to convince manager Arsene Wenger to give him more playing opportunities before the end of the campaign.
"Naturally, I would like to play more often, that's for sure, I feel very well, the results in fitness tests were the same as they were in previous seasons when I played regularly," Rosicky explained.
"When the coach picks me, I go along with all the tactical tasks and I think I have nothing to be ashamed of. It's the manager's team and I fully respect his decisions. I cannot do anything else other than train properly and wait for a chance."
Nonetheless, with Arsenal four points behind London rivals Tottenham in their quest for Champions League football, Rosicky admitted that the club's aim took precedence over his desire to play.
"The team has had problems so there's no space or time to complain that someone is not playing. To me, personally, the most important thing is that the club which I love finishes in a position where we can compete in the Champions League," he stated.
"I must convince myself so that it doesn't stay on my mind and doesn't frustrate me. That wouldn't help me or the club. Mr Wenger tells me to be patient but, obviously, the manager of such a club is not explaining every single decision to you."
