Mesut Ozil Strikes Criticism For Problems Under Unai Emery

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has responded to Instagram after criticism from former players. Ozil has scored three goals in all competitions this season, but the midfielder missed Arsenal’s victory over Fulham with backbone and there were reports of a training session bust-up with new manager Unai Emery at the start of the season. There were rumors that Emery told Ozil that he would be on the bench against West Ham, and the Germans responded by going out of training. But, both Ozil and Emery insisted on a disease was the reason for his absence in the Emirates.

Arsenal legend Martin Keown, an incredible critic of Ozil, claimed the midfielder was not missed at Craven Cottage, and ex-Gunner Charlie Nicholas predicted that he would be sold in January and the reason for his not playing could be the same. Ozil, who has returned from his back problem, sent Instagram: “Believe while others doubt # M1Ö #faith.”

The World Cup winner emphasized that he has a ‘good relationship’ with Emery after his goal-breaking performance in a 2-1 win in Newcastle last month.

“I’m very happy to play for Arsenal and especially for the new coach. We share a good understanding and we trust each other. We know what we want from each other and strive hard to fulfill expectations every time. There is a healthy relationship.” he said.

“He knows what he wants and the team accepts that we have a good relationship.” He added.

“We score and we are happy, even those players who do not play, we are all teams and these things are normal in a team. Some get a chance some don’t, but nothing is forever here.” Ozil is expected to be suitable when Arsenal hosts Leicester City after the international break.
