‘Doesn’t deserve to be on bench’ Arsenal boss Emery lays into Ozil as £350,000-a-week exit edges closer!
Unai Emery has blasted Mesut Ozil and claimed the German ‘didn’t deserve a place on the bench’ for the game against Standard Liege.
Ozil is one of the Gunners biggest players and one of the best number tens in world football, when he is on top form. But he has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past 12 months as his performances in an Arsenal shirt have not matched the wages he was given under Arsene Wenger.
It was no secret that Ozil was almost out-of-contract before Arsenal gave in and offered him a massive £350,000-a-week deal, especially as they literally just let Alexis Sanchez leave for Manchester United and did not want to lose another big named player.
But since then his performances have been inconsistent and he has been heavily criticised for his work-rate, even being dropped by current boss Unai Emery for the big games of the premier League season, with many ultimately claiming that he could have been sold during the summer.
Italian outlet Calcio Mercato claim the Gunners want to sell the German midfielder because he does not fit into manager Unai Emery’s plans and the Italian Publication add the 2014 World Cup winner has attracted interest from clubs in Turkey, China and America.
And it seems that his time at the club is pretty much over as he cant even make the bench for the Europa League games, as he was left out the side for the 4-0 hammering on Thursday night, leading to Emery suggesting that he does not deserve a place on the bench.
‘Really I am thinking every time to decide the best players for each match and the best player for the squad to play and [who will] help us,’ Emery saidEmery saidEmery said
‘When I decide he’s not in the squad it’s because another player deserves it more. Continue working. Tomorrow we have training, tomorrow we have training with the players who didn’t play.
‘And Sunday we have another match and we are going to decide the same, the first eleven possible. Our target is to win on Sunday and adapt to the difficulty of Bournemouth and carry on in the same way in each match.’

Ozil is not the same player that he used to be and it is clear that he does not fit into the style of Emery at Arsenal, so even though Emery has suggested that Ozil will be staying at the club, the best thing for him and his future is surely to leave the club?
if the right offer does arrive during the January window, then Arsenal should seriously let the German star go.
