Mesut Ozil takes to Instagram calling for Arsenal to stand together.
Mesut Ozil has called on Arsenal to ‘stand together’ ahead of their match against Liverpool on Wednesday.
The former German international midfielder has been out of the spotlight for much of this season as Unai Emery has picked him just twice all season, but he looks set for a return to the team against the Reds.
In Ozil’s absence, the club’s fans have found a new scapegoat in Granit Xhaka and the relationship between the Swiss midfielder and the club’s fans reached a new low at the weekend when he told them off while being booed off the field.
The whole episode has created a toxic atmosphere at the Emirates and Ozil has added his voice to those calling for calm.
Taking to his Instagram account, the German posted a picture of himself in training ahead of the Liverpool game and used the caption to send his message across.
“Big game ahead. No matter what – the only way is standing together as one,” He wrote.
Ozil’s absence has coincided with a serious lack of creativity in the Gunners’ midfield, however, he seems to be the architect of his problems with reports claiming that he doesn’t apply himself well enough in training and that is why he doesn’t get picked.
