Ozil is a creative force that has been wasted by Arsenal

Arsenal midfielder, Mesut Ozil has maintained that he will maintain his loyalty to the club.

This is coming from his exclusion from the team’s 25-man Squad for this season’s Premier League.

The German world cup winner who recently clocked 32 released a statement, expressingg his frustration at the treatment be in given to him by the club said he would continue to train and be at his best.

“I’m really deeply disappointed by the fact that I have not been registered for the Premier League season for the time being.

“Upon signing my new contract in 2018, I pledged my loyalty and allegiance to the club that I love, Arsenal, and it saddens me that this has not been reciprocated.

“I’ve always tried to remain positive from week to week that there’s maybe a chance to get back in the squad soon again. That’s why I kept silent so far,” Ozil wrote on social media.

Ozil’s stats at Arsenal

Ozil has scored 44 goals in 254 appearances for the Gunners since joining from Real Madrid seven years ago.

After falling out of favour under Unai Emery, he returned into the first team under interim boss Freddie Ljungberg.

He continued after Arteta’s appointment in December 2019, starting all 10 of Arsenal’s Premier League games immediately before the coronavirus pandemic forced a three-month suspension of the top-flight in March.

“Before the coronavirus break I was really happy with my development under our new coach Mikel Arteta – we’ve been on a positive way and I would say my performances were on a really good level,” Ozil added.

“But then things changed, again, and I was no longer allowed to play football for Arsenal.

“What else can I say? London still feels like home, I still have many good friends in this team, and I still feel a strong connection with the fans of this club.

“No matter what, I will keep fighting for my chance and not let my eighth season at Arsenal end like this.

“I can promise you that this hard decision won’t change anything in my mindset – I will continue to train as best as I can and wherever possible use my voice against inhumanity and for justice,” he added.
