'He was fantastic': Ozil says everyone 'really' misses Arsenal man who left in 2018

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has been extremely active on social media ever since Mikel Arteta decided to leave him out of the squad.

The German hasn’t kicked a ball for us since March. Arsenal clearly don’t want him and are trying hard to get him out of the club in the January transfer window.

Ozil would be wishing that the man who brought him to the club was still at the helm. The former Real Madrid man was a regular under Arsene Wenger when he was in charge.

The legendary Frenchman has come out in support of the German during his problems at the club over the last eight months. He has urged Arteta to bring him back into the squad (Goal), but that doesn’t look like it will happen.

However, Wenger’s words of encouragement would have filled Ozil with a lot of confidence. The German needs all the support he can possibly get at this time and it is safe to say that the pair’s relationship is still as strong as ever.

Ozil: Wenger was a fantastic manager

Ozil held a Q&A session on his Twitter last night and he was asked about his former boss. The playmaker labelled the Frenchman ‘a really fantastic manager’ and claimed that many at Arsenal still miss his presence at the club.

Wenger is undoubtedly our greatest ever manager. He is one of the biggest reasons why Arsenal are a global brand today, but the way he was hounded out of the club by a small yet extremely vocal section of our fan base was a real shame.

The legendary Frenchman, since his departure in 2018, hasn’t come back to Arsenal, even as a guest. Many feel that he is still hurting from everything that happened at the end of his career at Arsenal, but we need him now more than ever.

Both Arteta and Edu are fairly new to their jobs. They are young, exciting and know how the modern game works, but an experienced head alongside them would make a world of difference – both on and off the pitch.

Arsenal should seriously consider bringing Wenger back to the club in some capacity. His presence alone will make us stronger, and his insight will help everyone at the club become a lot better than they currently are.
