The German playmaker Mesut Ozil has definitely come back to his best form after bulking himself up during his enforced absence through injury, and has made it clear that he is not considering leaving Arsenal in the near future. “A return to Germany is not an option for me right now.” he said in the Independent. “I am really happy at Arsenal and I want this to continue.”
“I played in the Bundesliga and at Real Madrid. But the English Premier League is the strongest league in the world. Opponents never give up. Even if we’re 3-0 in front with Arsenal, the players never give up and fight until the very last second.”
So it looks like we will still have Ozil and Alexis feeding Jackson Martinez next season 🙂 With that dream attacking line-up we are sure to win the Quadruple!
Meanwhile, many fans have complained about Ozil swapping shirts with Kondogbia at half-time in Monaco. The sublime midfielder is completely bemused by the inflated attention given to his actions. “Geoffrey Kondogbia asked me for my shirt and I wanted to do him a favour.” he said.
“Maybe I should have given him the shirt in the tunnel. But seriously guys, is there nothing more important to discuss for a knockout game than a shirt swap?”
He certainly has a point, but I do remember Andre Santos getting seriously vilified for once doing the same thing once against Man United. I guess the fact that Brazilian dfender was totally rubbish, and his biggest mistake was swapping with our hated traitor Robin van Purse-strings. I certainly can’t see Arsenal fans treating Ozil with the same disdain, especially as he may have swapped with a future Arsenal player lol!
