Mesut Ozil’s contract at Arsenal is entering it’s final year this summer and with his form being very hit and miss this season, there are not many Arsenal fans that would be upset if he is sold. But would they be so happy if they found out he was going across London to our rivals Tottenham?
Well the Sp*rs legend Garth Crooks reckons that the German’s game is better suited to his old side, and would love him to go to White Hart Lane. Crooks declared: “A lot has been said about Mesut Ozil. Love him or hate him – and I love him – there is no denying he is a wonderful footballer.
“Is he in the right team? Probably not. A player with his talent would be more appreciated at a club like Tottenham.
“Now at this moment I may have Arsenal fans foaming at the mouth at the very thought of Ozil defecting to White Hart Lane but frankly it is a better fit.
“When Sol Campbell decided to move to Arsenal from Spurs it was because the player was desperate to win trophies.
“A perfectly acceptable position for a professional footballer to take and a fact that Spurs fans have never been able to come to terms with.
“However, Ozil’s style of football is perfect for Spurs and he has already won things with Arsenal.”
Leaving aside the fact of whether Tottenham could afford a player like him, or whether he would want to join them anyway, do you think he is better suited to their style of football?
