It is hardly a secret that Unai Emery has issues with Mesut Ozil, he does not appear to trust him in away games and according to reports in the media, the manager no longer wants him at Arsenal.
It is being reported that Emery was infuriated with the way that Ozil walked off the pitch in the 4-1 Europa League final defeat to Chelsea and that action has caused the Spaniard to lose complete faith in Arsenal’s highest profile star and is now demanding he be sold.
Ozil walked off in such a manner when we were 3-1 down that you would have thought that it was Arsenal that was winning.
He lumbered off so slowly that you have to question his attitude to the club, he gave the impression that he did not give a shit and that the game was already done and dusted.
It showed a massive lack of respect to the club and fans, he should have run off that pitch as if his life depended on it but not Ozil, he carried an attitude that he is such a big superstar that he can walk off at his own pace regardless of the circumstances on the pitch.
The fans were furious and now it seems that Emery was just as angry at his reaction to being substituted.
The big problem facing Arsenal though, is who will buy Ozil with the huge wages he is on?
It is very likely that he would refuse to take any pay cut and based on his performances and attitude who will trust him to play at a level that justifies £350k per week?
If Arsenal is to offload Ozil they will have to subsidise his wages and probably for a huge amount, possibly as much as £200k per week.
Ozil is now toxic, the fans, for the most part, do not want him and neither does his manager and I would not be surprised if some of the players do not want him at the club anymore but the simple fact is that it is almost impossible to get rid of him.
