The Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is obviously a very opinionated person and does his own thing whatever other people expect him to be doing. I was quite pleased when he made it clear that Arsene Wenger needed to buy some more star players in the summer.
When he first arrived Arsenal fans thought him lazy and lacklustre because he didn’t seem to be running around the pitch like a madman (mind you we call Walcott a headless chicken when he does it!) but we now know that he is careful and is always looking for his team-mates positions.
The German has been our best player all season, creating chance after chance for our misfiring strikers, but now it appears that he has been told to change his ways. Ozil said: “My goal is to make sure my body language is right.”
“When I make a mistake, I get annoyed and you can tell from my body language. But these days I try to make sure that I don’t do that anymore because in football you can make mistakes and play a bad pass.
“It is more for the fans, the people who watch the game, [rather than team-mates], because they might think that I’m not fighting anymore.”
Ozil, don’t change! We WANT you to be annoyed with mistakes. We on’t want you to smile and wave and pretend you don’t care. Whatever you have been doing since the beginning of the season just CARRY ON DOING IT!
But whoever is trying to teach you, could you send them to Olivier Giroud so he stops acting like a prat when he misses!
