Arsenal: Fans fall head over heels for Arsene Wenger after comments on Mesut Ozil - Arsenal

Arsenal fans have been falling head over heels for Arsene Wenger after the Frenchman’s comments on Mesut Ozil and his comments on the Uyghur issue.

Wenger came out in defence of the playmaker he signed way back in the summer of 2013, claiming the German has a right to express his freedom of speech (via BBC).

The former Germany international has been caught up in a storm with China after his comments on the Uyghur issue.

Ozil called out the mistreatment of over a million Muslim minority in the far western Xinjiang region as well as the Muslim world for their silence on the issue.

As a result, the club’s clash against Manchester City was pulled from the scheduling of state broadcaster CCTV.

Fans were lauding Wenger after his comments about Ozil as they took to Twitter to react.

Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
