Unai Emery looks to profit from Mesut Ozil’s international football retirement
Arsenal’s slow start of the season might be closely related to Mesut Ozil’s notable drop in form.The 29-year-old playmaker arrived at the Emirates Stadium in 2013, instantly establishing himself as an indispensable first-team member. Although he is undeniably one of the most gifted midfielders in Europe, his attitude and lack of commitment have often been a subject of discussion.Even this season, the left-footed Gelsenkirchen native has failed to make an impact during the opening four fixtures, which saw Arsenal massively struggling in the final third, especially against Manchester City and Chelsea.The former Real Madrid star was also omitted from the Gunners’ side that faced West Ham due to an argument with the manager Unai Emery over his laziness on the training ground.However, the Spanish manager desperately wants to see the German wizard recovering his old form, and Ozil’s decision to retire from international football might just come in handy.In an interview with ESPN, Emery acknowledged that he is doing his best to help Ozil rediscover his game. “We get on very well. I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances.”“Mesut, like other players, works very well here and also working… together to improve things.”With Saturday’s showdown with Newcastle United around the corner, the Gunners fans hope to see Ozil returning to be a protagonist again.
