German international Mesut Ozil was recently claimed to be keen on an exit from Arsenal FC, but the playmaker has today rubbished such rumours. The 27 year-old was claimed to have spoken to his agent about a possible exit, whilst being said to be unwilling to stay at the Emirates unless Arsene Wenger was moved on.
Ozil has now come out on Twitter to blow such reports out of the water, by tweeting: ‘Have seen the media reports today. Arsène Wenger was a big reason for me joining Arsenal – this hasn’t changed!
Of course when we hear any kind of rumours coming out of Spain, we are usually quick to rubbish them in our minds, but due to Mesut Ozil’s importance to our club, the story could have been a big one. It is also nice to have one of our star players coming out on social media to back our manager, who has been dividing our own fans on whether he should still remain in charge.
Wenger has come under increased scrutiny due to his failure to mount a serious title challenge, and many of our fans have even held up banners calling for him to step down.
This season has been a peculiar one, with none of the big players actually vying for the title, leaving Leicester out in front, with our noisy neighbours the only team within 10 points of them.
Of the so-called big teams, we are the only ones who can be confident of securing our place in next season’s Champions League, with a five-point lead on fifth-placed West Ham.
The madness and beauty of the world renowned Premier League is what we love, and we have to be noted as the most consistent performers in recent years, and with a good summer of spending (and a little luck on the injury front), there will be no reason why we wont be challenging for next season’s league title.
I know you are dying to tell me we need a new man in charge, but you have to agree that this year has been more mad then anything else, surely?
