“The moment I see he is ready to do that again I will treat him like everyone else. I have been more than fair with him and he has responded in many games, the way I want. That’s it”
“A lot has happened to him in the last few weeks and I have to respect the timing of every player. Sometimes they need a little bit of time.
“It has been difficult preparation in the last two months to get players ready.
“Again, I am the first one who wants Mesut at his best. I will put him on the pitch when I think he can give his best.”
When asked how Ozil reacted to being omitted, Arteta replied: “He was very well with me. There were no issues at all.
“My conversation with Mesut is going to remain with him and me. It was a clear and honest conversation.”
