'I will support at home' - Ozil responds to Arsenal Europa League snub with fresh tweet


Mesut Ozil Arsenal 2019-20

Mesut Ozil reaffirmed his support for Arsenal with a message on Twitter ahead of their Europa League clash with Rapid Vienna on Thursday.

The former Germany international went public with his disappointment after being left out, commenting that “loyalty is hard to come by” in football. Ozil has played more than 250 times for Arsenal since joining in 2013, but hasn’t featured at all since English football returned from coronavirus lockdown.

Nevertheless, Ozil was keen to point out he would still be supporting his team-mates from home.

He posted on Twitter: “When I can't support on the pitch tonight, I will support in front of the TV in London. What are your predictions for the match? I go for a 4-1 away victory.” Ozil tagged Sead Kolasinac, Mohamed Elneny and Alexandre Lacazette in the tweet, saying they and Nicolas Pepe would score Arsenal’s goals in Vienna.

Ozil now appears to be staring down the barrel of an anticlimactic exit from north London, though it remains to be seen which clubs would be willing to take on his expected huge wage demands.

Arteta said he did not feel he had done anything wrong in his treatment of Ozil since taking over as manager.

“Everybody is free to express his feelings,” Arteta said. “What I can say from my side is it’s just a football decision, that my conscience is very calm because I’ve been really fair with him.

“My level of communication with him has been really high and we know what to expect with each other.

“He has had the opportunities like everybody else. I am sad that I had to leave three players out of this list, which is never pleasant, but I just have to say that I tried to look everybody in the eye and be comfortable with it.
