I find it so sad that a former star of the Germany World Cup winning team has fallen so badly as what should be the tail end of his prime comes to a close.
Just 6 goals and 3 assists last season on his 18m a year salary.
An extended spell out injured with a bad back aggravated by an alleged Fortnite addiction.
A woeful performance in the Europa league final.
Emery is keen to offload him but no other club is even interested and paper talk is that we’d have to subsidise his wages in any move ie we can’t even give him away.
I hope for his sake he gets some self respect rather than sitting there on his mega salary while his contract runs down. He should have his agent scouring the leagues for a new home and a new start where he can try to shine again. He doesn’t need more money he needs to gain back his self respect before it’s too late to resurrect the end of his career.
Sadly his career at Arsenal has failed badly. The contract extension at that salary has been a huge mistake by the Board (Stan, Josh and Gazidis in particular) and by a desperate and past it Wenger who lost his way so badly at the end of what had once been a wonderful Arsenal career.
Fingers crossed that Ozil and the board end this sorry affair as soon as possible and free up some desperately needed funds in the process.
