Arsenal boss admits star is struggling after shocker

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has claimed that midfielder Mesut Ozil is not yet over his penalty miss from midweek against Bayern Munich, as reported by talkSPORT.

The German international saw his first half spot kick saved by Manuel Neuer on Wednesday night and the Gunners went on to lose 2-0 at the Emirates.

Criticism has been thrown Ozil’s way in recent games and especially after the Bayern game, with team mate Mathieu Flamini joining in with an on-field bust up.

Wenger has admitted that the big money summer signing is still effected by the spot kick but after apologising the boss believes that if the fans lay off him he will return to his best.

“Is he over it now? Certainly not, but it is also part of the job as to deal with disappointment and to show that you can respond to it,” Wenger said.

“He apologised after the game, but I don’t think people are shocked by the fact that he missed a penalty because Bayern missed a penalty as well.

“He takes his penalties in an unusual way so people are maybe a little bit less understanding, but everybody can miss penalties. It is his way, you accept it or not. It’s his way of taking penalties like that.”
