Football in England: playing Özil at Arsenal FC no longer

The former German national soccer player Mesut Özil plays at Arsenal FC since the Corona-Pause no longer, and threatens also on Tuesday (21.15 in the case of Sky) sitting in the home game against Leicester City on the bench or not even in the squad. "The Situation is as it was before," said Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta on Monday briefly on the question of whether Özil and his French team-mate Mattéo could play Guendouzi this week.

The Coach had criticised the Duo on Friday indirectly. Responded to their absence, said Arteta, he put on players, "the respect for the values that we want to implement that feel committed to our culture, 100 percent, and players who are every day live up to what we expect of them." He expected that the players "are willing to help each other to fight for each other, and that you enjoy it to play together," said Arteta.

Since the kickoff in the Premier League, Özil is waiting for a use for the Gunners. Last week against Norwich City, the 31-Year-old did not stand, according to the Association information due to back problems in the squad. On Saturday in Wolverhampton he was again in the squad. For Arsenal, it went uphill, however, last. After two defeats, the London were won last four games in the series.

British media speculate that Arsenal wants to get rid of its top earners Özil ahead of time. The contract of the former world champion is still running until the summer of 2021. Özil and his advisors have repeatedly stressed that he wants to fulfill his contract in London.
