Mesut Ozil divides opinion amongst all football fans. Over a season he delivers a blend of world-class performances with some very poor, lacklustre displays.
The German World Cup winner is seen by most as one of Arsenal’s best players, though many disagree and question his work ethic, attitude and desire to impress when things get hard.
Despite the criticism, the playmaker has been part of several successful teams, winning three FA Cups with the Gunners while starting in all three finals, and has been named German Player of the Year five times. For all the criticism he receives as a footballer, his honours will tell you differently.
Criticism of Ozil goes beyond his footballing talents, having missed many games due to illness, sore muscles and now due to a bruised foot – news Arsenal fans haven’t taken too well.
Ozil missing today due to a bruised foot.
