The media cannot help themselves, whenever they get given the opportunity they will ask about Mesut Ozil and his future with Arsenal and it really does not matter what the manager says, or for that matter, the player, they will continue asking.
So, today we had the usual Friday press conference and of course, Emery was asked about Ozil. “He’s working very well, playing very well, he’s helping us”. he said
“I’m very happy with him. I think the team has a good atmosphere, good spirit with each player helping us with their qualities and good behaviour”
“That’s the spirit I want, they are doing that, and Mesut is like the others [in that regard]”
I have to say that it is now irritating, it is clear to anyone that has seen Ozil in recent weeks that he is in a good place, he has adapted to the demands of the boss, he obviously accepts that he will not play every game and that is now being reflected in the German masetro’s performances.
Will Ozil play on Sunday? Who knows?That is a decision that will be made on how Emery approaches the game and I personally will be fine with that and the chances are, so will Ozil.
The press are intent on reporting that Ozil will be sold, they have done that regularly throughout the season, it is either he is paid too much or does not fit in with the future direction of the club or that he is unhappy and wants to move on.
But from what I can see, he appears happy, the manager appears happy and the team appears happy.
Let’s move on….
