Ian Wright knows who he wants to stay at Arsenal out of Emery and Ozil.
Arsenal has been the centre of a minor battle between Mesut Ozil and Unai Emery this season. A feud that has split the club’s fans and former players.
Several fans believe that Ozil is no longer up to the required level to play for the Gunners. Others feel the former German international is exactly the player that Arsenal needs at the moment.
Ian Wright is however very clear about whose side he is on. According to the former Gunners attacker, Unai Emery is wrong to keep Ozil out of the team as he has done for much of this season.
Ozil has only started two games for the Gunners all season and Wright believes that he is the exact kind of player that the team needs at the moment.
When asked who he wanted to stay longer, Wright said: “Well hopefully Ozil”
“He’s already said he doesn’t want to leave. For me, hopefully, it’s Ozil.”
Arsenal has struggled for creativity in the absence of the German and was beaten in their last league game against Sheffield United.
Emery and Ozil are both contracted to the club until 2021 and it would be interesting to see who leaves first.
That said, a lot will depend on results. If Emery has Arsenal top-four by Christmas then Ozil could be forced out first. If results do not improve then it could be the Spaniard out first.
