Ozil’s agent claims his client cannot play for another EPL club in a dig at former Gunner

Mesut Ozil’s agent Erkut Sogut has appeared to aim a dig at Pierre Emerick Aubameyang by claiming his client cannot play for another English club.

The German midfielder was on the books of the Gunners between 2013 and 2021 before leaving to join Fenerbahce in the Turkish top flight.

Ozil had enjoyed some success at the Emirates before falling out of favour under Mikel Arteta.

That eventually ended his time at the club, but most Arsenal fans do not have any problem with the midfielder.

Aubameyang similarly lost his place on the Arsenal team and left for Barcelona.

However, he returned to London this season by joining Chelsea, a move that shows he does not care about his history with the Gunners. Sogut assures that cannot happen with Ozil.

He told Tribal Football: “Ozil could never play for another English club, he’s not like Aubameyang.

“He loved his time at Arsenal and is still in contact with a lot of players, not least Saka. They have a special relationship.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Ozil was on the books of Arsenal for a long time, longer than Auba and the German had a special relationship with Gooners.

The club also loved Auba, but he didn’t spend as much time at the Emirates as the German did.

This could be why he didn’t think twice before accepting to move back to London with the Blues.

  1. Ozil,Auba,Guendouzi,Mustafi,Kalasniac etc were rougue players causing AFC problems on and off the pitch.
    When people look at what Edu and Arteta are achieving now with disciplined,professional players who are at one with the club,manager and team mates it becomes obvious that Arteta had to worm out the badness within before the club could start to move forward.
    I still cringe at Ozils name and his egotistical behaviour and his cronies Mustafi and Kalasniac,Auba although likable and although a good player for AFC did his own thing turning up late for training etc i applaud Arteta for ‘The Process’ ive supported AFC for over 50 years and after so much bs since Wenger left he has transformed AFC back to the team and club i love,words cannot discribe how grateful i am to Artera and Edu.
    Get the scultures on the phone Mr.Kronke and build statures outside the ground for these two legends !

      1. “ Get the scultures on the phone Mr.Kronke and build statures outside the ground for these two legends !”

        Haha thanks Stan adams ,for a pick me up in my day 😂😂

      2. NY- GUNNER, WELL EVEN IF I laid all the problems they caused out in fine detail, you would never accept the truth(which is what StanAdams wrote). So why bother asking, since you dont wish to hear the awful truth!

        The truth though is, as Stan said, that our fine and dynamic manager had to clear all these wastrels out asap and he has done so with magnificent results since they left.

        OZIL , IN PARTICULAR, IS TO ME THE SINGLE MOST DESPISED PLAYER WHO EVER WORE OUR SHIRT. IF I SAID WHAT I REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT HIM, I WOULD BE BANNED .

        1. Well said Jon, and may I add that such a shame of a player (attitude) I would not want even at Spurs. I would prefer us beating them down with their best.

  2. Worraloadarubbish.

    “That eventually ended his time at the club, but most Arsenal fans do not have any problem with the midfielder”

    Have you conducted a poll of all Arsenal fans? Please post the results.

  3. I disagree that most Arsenal fans have no problem with Ozil. WELL, WE MAY NOT NOW THAT HE IS MERCIFULLY GONE, BUT WE SURE DID WHEN HE WASTED HIS LAST SEVERAL SEASONS HERE IN EFFECTIVE RETIREMENT ON OBSCENE WAGES.

  4. This is where the stats come into play and prove that Mesut Ozil was a master at his trade.

    Great to hear that Saka still keeps in touch with the maestro and probably explains why he goes from strength to strength.

    Let’s hope he emulates MO, by winning a World Cup medal, though he’ll have to go some to break all of Ozil’s other achievements.

    Once a Gunner always a Gunner – thanks Mesut!!

    1. Unfortunately ken, Mezut Ozil and his career at Arsenal after his first two seasons, is one thing I will always disagree with you on. I do hsve a problrm with Ozil, as he was an excessively paid idler (yes the Board’s fault for offering the contract) on the pitch and a disruptive influence off it. His performance in the Eutopa League final should have been enough for most people; it certainly was for Unai Emery. The failure of the Board to back Emery in discipline of Ozil was one of the factors, which led to his demise. Thank goodness they backed Mikel Arteta, even at financial cost.
      How would Ozil earn a contract back in England, let alone the EPL, based on his record at Arsenal or subsequently at Fenebahce?

  5. Nobody would want Ozil in Premier League so that’s why he won’t be back

    As for Auba – he left and is playing for Chelsea now. He is past history with a blot on his copybook too.

    If we’re going to reminisce about former players, why not remember the ones who gave their all?

  6. OG, if you really believe that MO left the club because of his performances, that’s your perogative my friend.

    I believe he was hounded out of the club for his stance on taking a pay cut that achieved nothing for the club… but benefited the owner – his political argument that threatened the revenue coming from China… that benefitted the owner – his ridiculous salary, sanctioned by the owner… who then benefitted when he was off the pay roll.

    As for the final, why are you singling out Ozil?
    The whole team were rubbish and Emery had gambled everything on winning the game, where he was completely outclassed by a better coach…. just my personal opinion.

    1. I should have added OG, why, if his playing career at the club should have been over, did MA select him for all twelve of the unbeaten run leading up to the coronavirus PL cancellation?

      Strangely enough, all of the above I mention (apart from his grotesque salary) took place while covid restrictions were in place…. kinda weird that, wouldn’t you say?

      Pleasing to note, that he has finally had surgery on his back and I wish him well for the future.
