Arsenal fans are happy for once here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the latest claim from the Daily Star.
The publication have claimed that Arsenal’s players have offered their backing to under fire player Mesut Ozil.
The German international has been out injured for a fair while and after going off the boil even when he was fit, our punters note that questions have been asked about the ability that Ozil has.
However, Per Mertesacker has come out in support of the German star and noted: “We need these moments where you can see we’ve got great players and some great finishers with Lukas Podolski on the scoresheet and Aaron Ramsey back on track, Mesut back on track.
“All these players could make a difference.
“When you have your whole squad together for as long as possible, that can make a difference.
“We suffered a bit in the second part of the season but now everyone is coming back to full fitness. We’ve had some long-term injuries and it’s good to have them all back.”
Of course, given how fragile Ozil is, words of support from his team-mates could well do him the world of good and we think that next season could well be the one for Ozil to shine.
Do you think that Ozil could well be the man of the season next year? Let us know your thoughts below.
