Arteta talks about his decision to dismiss Mesut Özil

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has spoken once again about Mesut Özil’s situation at the Gunners.

Removed from the group selected for the Premier League and excluded in Europa League, Mesut Özil is heading for a white season. In an interview with beIN Sports, Mikel Arteta assumed his choice to do without the services of the 2014 world champion.

“Some people will understand”

“I’m making decisions which I think are the best for the club. This is what I have to do, said the Spanish technician. When you lose matches, your name comes back and when you win, it doesn’t. I think since I got here you see where some players started and where they are right now. Their career changed completely and they deserved it. We gave them opportunities and they took them. “

In addition to assuming his choice, the Gunners coach said he was transparent on this issue. “I try to be as clear as possible with Mesut, the media and the fans because they deserve to know the reasons,” said Mikel Arteta. Some people will understand and others will not understand given what he has done for the club. “
