Hard words from Paul Merson, a former Arsenal player, who believes that the German’s floor is too high for what he does on the court.
The numbers of Mesut Özil, in this Premier League, and also in the last editions, it has been very weak. And although Mikel Arteta continues to support it, we can hear voices of weight asking for Arsenal cut your contract and let it go.
“Without the ball he is one of the worst players in the world. It does not run, it does not remove. Understandably, he earns £ 350,000 a week. It’s a waste, ”said Paul Merson, a former English player who spent 10 years in the Gunner box.
He also added: “In this time of crisis, it is better to have footballers who run and do their jobs and do not involve lost money.” For now, Özil has a contract with the London team until 2021 and there does not seem to be anyone interested in keeping it. There are said to be offers from Turkey, but nothing solid. like Qatar and the United States.
