“The situation is frustrating for everyone” – Ozil 0

Posted on December 24, 2020 by Veselin Trajkovic

Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil did a Q&A session on Twitter on Wednesday, and he said a few interesting things.

Among other things, the German was asked to name the most underrated player he had ever played alongside with, and not only did he name Matteo Guendouzi, he also tagged the young midfielder in his reply.

“I’m sure he will be a big football player one day”, said Ozil.

The Mirror have interpreted this statement as a suggestion that manager Mikel Arteta made a mistake with the way he handled Guendouzi’s well-documented disciplinary issues, though quite frankly, it doesn’t seem that way. Guendouzi’s talent and football quality was never questioned, by Arteta or anyone whose opinion would be relevant. He was frozen out for disciplinary reasons alone.

Mikel Arteta has agreed a three-and-a-half year deal to take over as Arsenal manager and should be appointed officially in time to take charge of the team which will face Everton on Saturday, according to Mirror.

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has opened up on the way the club lost the services of Serge Gnabry, who has gone on to shine for Bayern Munich.

Gnabry made his professional debut for Arsenal at the age of 17, back in 2012 when he entered a League Cup clash against Coventry City in the 72nd minute in the place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and he went on to play a total of 18 games for the club before leaving on loan to West Bromwich Albion in 2015. The temporary move was cancelled and he returned to the Emirates the following winter due to not getting enough game-time with the Baggies. Wenger says he tried to “rebuild” him following that “very bad experience” which had destroyed his confidence.

Nicolas Pepe should be given time to adapt to playing for Arsenal, according to former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

After failing to land Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace this summer with two bids reportedly rejected for the Ivorian, the club moved on and signed Pepe from Lille for £72 million. Since the start of the season, the 24-year-old has played in every competitive game apart from the 5-0 thrashing of Nottingham Forrest in the Carabao Cup. His total at the moment stands at one goal and three assists from 10 games, eight in the Premier League (six starts), and two in the Europa League.

We’ve all seen and heard a lot from former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger over the course of the last year or so, as he continues to come to terms with the fact that he is no longer in charge of the club. While that may sound ridiculous to say out loud, it’s true, because the guy just doesn’t seem to understand that he is no longer in charge and a lot of people don’t really value what he has to say anymore.

The new Premier League season is just a few weeks old, and at this stage of proceedings, we’d argue that things are going pretty well. The Gunners are off to a fairly decent start and while they may have dropped points against Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, they’re positioned well to come flying out of the blocks when the international break comes to an end.
