Is Ozil the remedy to Arteta’s problems at Arsenal?
Mesut Ozil has been sidelined from the first-team squad at club level this season for some obscure reasons best known to Mikel Arteta and the Arsenal board.
The German ingenious midfielder hasn’t featured for the Gunners since the pay-cut row he had with the club.
Despite featuring heavily for Arteta during the Spaniard’s early reign, Ozil has been sent on exile.
A ludicrous decision which reeks of silliness, regardless of which prism you view it from.
On a business level, it doesn’t make sense to keep your highest earner on the bench.
And quality-wise, nothing justifies the exemption of a fully fit Mesut Ozil from the first team.
No present Arsenal player has the creative talent of the 30-year-old.
There’s a reason why he Ozil is considered as one of the best midfielders in his position.
Arsenal could use his quality at a time like this where they have failed to score a goal from open play in more than 7 hours of football.
Arteta’s midfielder has failed to create ample chances for the strikers to score.
The Spanish tactician has chopped and altered his starting eleven in recent games.
Searching for a suitable link between his midfield and the attack.
Both Willian and Ceballos have been given opportunities in that position but they failed to deliver.
But what if the remedy Arsenal’s goal drought sickness is currently an employee of the club?
Earning 300k weekly but restricted from making any contributions whatsoever this season.
Yes! what if Ozil is the solution to Arsenal’s problems, at least for the short term?
It feels like the most sensible thing to do at this point.
Introducing a proven player who can solve their immediate problems.
Ozil returning to the fold will be like new signing who doesn’t need time to bed in and could ease the pressure on Arteta and Arsenal.
The decision lies with the hierarchy of the club, but the will to effect it seems to be absent.
