Former Arsenal captain sheds more light on Ozil's situation

It is no more a story that Arsenal's Mesut Ozil has been totally disintegrated from Mikel Arteta's squad. The reason behind this action has been a gold everyone is digging.

Various sportsmen have learned their voices concerning the disheartening situation. To ascertain the reason, most of Arsenal fans are divided as per no definite reason can be held on to for Ozil's absolute omission from the team.

To come close, some Ozil's former team mates have defined Ozil as a professional individual who is also respectful and hard working.

Arsenal former captain Laurent Koscielny is now the latest player to define Ozil. Ozil has once assisted Koscielny in captaincy role which implies that they know each other well.

This is every word the former french player has said about Ozil:

"We’re both part of the 'Arsene Wenger Generation'", Koscielny told French outlet L'Equipe (via Sport Witness ). "The coach loved him as a player. It was more complicated with Unai Emery and Mikel Arteta.

"Knowing him, he must always be professional in training, always on time. He is undoubtedly at the level demanded by the Premier League.

"There is probably a certain case with the club since last year, I hope both sides find a deal that works for everyone. He is a competitor. I hope to see him back on the pitch soon, at Arsenal or elsewhere, because he is real talent

"As a man, he’s a very good person, who got along with all his teammates. He gave a lot, helped sick children. He is a generous person, with whom I got along very well".

"As a player, he is in my opinion a phenomenon. He can find passes that no one sees, he’s a maestro. He can rock a game with incredible passes."

Ozil hasn't played for Arsenal since March and recently he has been snubbed from all competitions but If Ozil continues being professional, Arteta may change his mind and reintroduce him to the team.
