I am not really sure why Arsene Wenger and Arsenal have decided to make this injury to Mesut Ozil into an issue. And with the terrible record that the club has had with injuries in recent years, you would think that we were the last people to cast doubt on the competence of any other medical team.
The 25-year old midfielder apparently picked up what seemed like a small knock in the defeat at Chelsea last weekend and when he met up with the Germany national squad it was bothering him enough for them to send him for a scan which showed some ligament damage in his left knee, as reported by ESPN, and the German medical team stated that it would mean that Ozil would probably miss around 10-12 weeks.
Bad news for us, but for some reason Wenger has suggested that the German’s medical expert may have made a mistake. In an Arsenal.com report the Frenchman said that Arsenal would do their own examination of Ozil and hinted that he might not be out for as long.
When told about this the German assistant coach Thomas Schneider re-stated that they were certain of their own expert’s findings, so what is it all about. If Arsenal are proved to be right, of course, it may go some way to easing the fears that there is an underlying problem at Arsenal. But if not, this needless row will only highlight the injury issue. What do you think Gooners?
