Arsenal balls: Mesut Ozil makes mugs of the experts

by | 6th, April 2015

Jamie Redknapp says Arsenal’s German midfileder Mesut Ozil “is something special and worth paying to watch”.

Redknapp tells his Daily Mail readers that “Mesut Ozil is an easy target for ex-pros and pundits…”

Adding:

“When things don’t come off for the German, people are quick to criticise. We do that too much in this country — looking at what people can’t do rather than what they can — and it’s where we go wrong so often.”

Well, going into Arsenal’s last match in which Ozil shone, Redknapp said Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson “will press hard and make sure Mesut Ozil and Santi Cazorla have no room to breathe.”

So much for that foresight. But Redknapp is right about the British Press lining up to knock Ozil:

Lost and lazy Ozil might have cost Arsenal £42.5m but he isn’t worth two-bob… and he’s nicking a living…

Chelsea star Eden Hazard rated Europe’s best midfielder… along with Arsenal flop Mesut Ozil as stats prove German’s worth…

Alexis Sanchez is wasted on the wing… he should be Arsenal’s No 10, not Mesut Ozil…

Arsenal pair Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are Arsene Wenger’s biggest transfers… but why can’t they play well together?…

All comments and more you can read in the, er, Daily Mail…
