Mikel Arteta made a comment about the German’s non-inclusion in the Premier League application and Erkut Sogut, an agent of Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil, criticized Gunners coach.
“Arsenal fans deserve an honest explanation, not Arteta’s words that he did not succeed. He did not succeed in being honest, open, did not succeed in respecting someone who has a valid contract, who has always been faithful,” the player’s agent said to ESPN.
“I all know that Arteta unfairly treated Ozil. He did not give him the opportunity to prove himself this season. If the player still has a contract, he should have the opportunity to stay and fight for his place. Mesut was not given such an opportunity.”
“Everyone says Mesut is training well. I talked to at least five teammates of Ozil, who said that he is well trained. They say that Mesut is one of the best, and they do not understand why he is not in the application. So it’s not about training. If it’s not about what happens on the field, then what are the football reasons?”
“If you speak, then tell the truth that Arsenal fans deserve, otherwise it’s better to just stay silent.”
