Mesut Ozil SLAMS Arsenal for a lack of 'loyalty' after being left out of Premier League squad


BREAKING NEWS: Mesut Ozil speaks out to SLAM Arsenal for a lack of ‘loyalty’ and says he is being stopped from playing for the club he ‘loves’ after Mikel Arteta cut him from his Premier League squad 

Mesut Ozil has broken his silence on his exile from the Arsenal squad after being left out of their 25-man Premier League squad, admitting he is ‘deeply disappointed’ by Mikel Arteta’s decision and hit out at the club’s lack of ‘loyalty’.

The German midfielder has not featured for the Gunners since before the Premier League restarted from coronavirus lockdown but has fallen far down the pecking order under Arteta – with his exclusion from his domestic squad the latest blow. 

Ozil has spoken out on social media to give a passionate message to Arsenal fans, revealing how he has been ‘saddened’ to be left out of the team and that his ‘allegience’ to the team is not being reciprocated.

‘This is a difficult message to write to the @Arsenal fans that I’ve played for over the past few years,’ he wrote. ‘I’m really deeply disappointed by the fact that I have not been registered for the @PremierLeague 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. As I have just found out, loyalty is hard to come by nowadays. 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. 

‘Before the Coronavirus break I was really happy with the 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.

‘But then things changed, again, and I was not 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 8th 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.’
