Wenger Comments On Ozil's Strange Situation

With German playmaker Mesut Ozil hardly making matchday squads at Arsenal lately, former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has addressed the midfielder's strange situation in London.

The 30-year-old has featured in just one of Arsenal's past seven league games, and it continues to appear that manager Unai Emery does not trust the 2014 FIFA World Cup winner to play to his instruction.

Many were surprised to see Ozil being given a new deal at the Gunners in February last year, especially as he had not been at his best for the London club for quite some time.

Asked recently about his former player's situation, Wenger suggested that the attacking midfielder's new deal last year might be the reason he is not working as hard as he perhaps should.

"I feel that the length of the contract has nothing to do normally with the selection of the team," the Frenchman said, according to The Guardian.

"But sometimes there are special cases. Most of the time now we think when we sign a player for five years, we have a good player for five years.

"But that doesn't necessarily mean that they practise, they play their best. Because they might be in their comfort zone."

Ozil has played just 18 matches across all competitions for the Gunners so far this season, contributing to six goals along the way.

Do you think Ozil still has a future at Arsenal? Let us know in the comments section below.
