Arsenal are ‘really missing’ Arsene Wenger said Mesut Ozil
By saying that the club is ‘really missing’ Arsene Wenger, ARSENAL outcast Mesut Ozil seemed to take a light dig at boss Mikel Arteta.
When the North Londoners signed the German playmaker from Real Madrid for a then-club-record fee of £ 42.5 million in 2013, the former Gunners gaffer was necessary
And in his opening season in England, Ozil, 32, was influential as he helped the club break their nine-year trophy drought by winning the FA Cup.
Before the iconic Frenchman left the Emirates in 2018, he won the competition two more times under Wenger.
But as former team-mate Arteta excluded him from his matchday squads, Ozil was not part of the Arsenal side which won the FA Cup last term.
Since March, having been left out of their Premier League and Europa League rosters, the World Cup winner has struggled to make a competitive appearance for the club.
And during his absence, the Gunners have suffered as they lack any kind of imagination in the final third of the pitch.
In 15th at the table after 14 games, Arsenal has suffered their worst start to a campaign since 1974.
Speaking at a Q&A session on Twitter, Ozil claims that some of the Arsenal team are struggling not to have Wenger in charge.
