Arsenal's Mikel Arteta: 'I feel that I have failed with Mesut Özil'

Mikel Arteta has said he must bear the brunt of responsibility for Mesut Özil’s demise at Arsenal after the midfielder was left out of the team’s 25-man Premier League squad. The Gunners’ head coach said he felt he had not been able to get the best out of the club’s highest-paid player, who said in a statement on Wednesday that ‘loyalty is hard to come by nowadays’.

    Pressure from Fly Emirates and China has forced Arsenal to Drop Ozil from the team and the club altogether just because he spoke his mind freely, that is not a sporting decision in a million years, what a shame.

    Is it a footballing or business decision?

    I have been a season ticket owner and am disgusted on what he just said. I have never wanted Arteta to fail until now.

    It's not arteta honestly, its the board. Some fans are talking absolute nonsense saying its nothing to do with China but it is. Yes Ozil played last season but the contract with China hadn't expired till the end of the season. The contract was renewed again before the start of the 20/21 season and China put in a conditional clause which meant Ozil would not be allowed to feature as State broadcaster CCTV would stop payments and Arsenal would miss out on millions. Arsenal have restaurants in China and other ventures those would all be affected. Ozil is not being excluded for footballing reasons.
