Arsenal football legend, Thierry Henry shared his thoughts about the 28-year-old’s form this season. “He can clearly play and last year everyone was praising him, This year, he is struggling because he doesn’t do enough on a daily basis”,Henry said.
Mesut Ozil has been criticized for not doing enough, suggesting his performances have not been up to standard. The midfielder was criticised for his performance in Arsenal’s 2-2 draw against Manchester City, despite supplying his 50th assist for the English club was accused of “bottling” a second-half opportunity, when City goalkeeper Willy Caballero beat him to the ball.
“When he plays in an Arsenal shirt, sometimes it’s not up to the standard of Arsenal. When he has a good game, he is unstoppable. He is a World Cup champion, he won at Real Madrid and he won two cups with Arsenal.
But you need to play like that all the time. It can’t be from time to time”.
“I’m a big admirer of him and how he plays but if he was in my old team, I know a couple of guys would have had a go at him and maybe that’s what he needs.
“In my old team, everyone talked. Sylvain Wiltord talked. Edu the same. Even Nkwankwo Kanu would have said something. Jens Lehmann, he was talking all the time. We had guys at it throughout the team.” Henry added.
