Ozil sends bold message ahead of Liverpool tie

Ozil's sends bold message ahead of Liverpool game amid being frozen out by Arteta

July 15, 2020 By Ali M.
The German ace has not played a single minute for the Gunners since football returned.

Mesut Ozil has taken to his huge social media platform to issue a defiant message amid his recent Arsenal struggles. The German playmaker, who is the club's highest earner, has failed to feature for the Gunners since football returned but the midfielder cleared the air surrounding his fitness ahead of Wednesday's clash with Liverpool.

Despite being a starter under the new manager in the games leading up to the suspension, the 2014 World Cup winner has played 0 minutes since the 2019/20 campaign got back underway. The former Real Madrid ace was an unused sub for two league games and has had back issues, but the problems surrounding the 31-year-old appear to be deeper than that.

Mikel has been asserting his dominance and has shown no tolerance toward poor behavior and professionalism. Such is the case with Guendouzi who has been frozen out of the squad and while it cannot be said that the Ozil situation is identical to that of the young Frenchman, connections can be drawn.

A mysterious back injury has been blamed for the German's recent absence, with Arteta stating that little has changed regarding Ozil's situation. However, the playmaker has taken to Instagram to post a defiant message and offer an update.

Having returned to training, the midfielder posted a picture of himself during a session with the caption "I am ready". Was this a public display of commitment towards Arteta and his plans at Arsenal? This remains unknown, as does his role in the squad.

The gaffer remained coy when asked if Ozil would play again for the club this season. As a result, it would be a huge surprise to see him in the lineup for Wednesday's crucial clash with Liverpool, given that the north London giants are in ninth with 50 points as their European hopes hang by a thread.
